    OK, found something good enough. It turns off all volumes on the desktop!

    Press Alt + F2 and enter "gconf-editor" without the quotes and press enter.
    Navigate to Apps -> Nautilus -> Desktop
    Select or deselect the appropriate options. (I turned off volumes_visible)

    "Simples Tchk!"
