    Hi ,

    I think you are mouting your partition with ntfs-3g witch is using fuse/dbus .... , in a way that i do not fully understand but that finaly display the partitions on the desktop.

    If you simply add
    Code:
    mount -ntfs /dev/sdx /mnt/windowd_c -rw
    to your rc.local , it will be mounted with no desktop icon.
