Well this is probably the last thing for my system setup, being a long time amiga user, I wanted to setup my vector system much like my amiga box.
I managed to setup a panel much like amidock, its full of program launchers. Nightflier helped me setup a ram disk and I have a desktop icon that looks like amiga os to access the ram disk now...
The whole system is setup exactly how I wanted, looking very amiga os like except that the home and file system icons are still there. I setup icons to access my hard drives from the desktop, but I wanted to remove the home and file system icons on the desktop...
If I could do that it would look very similar to the amiga setup I've come so accustomed to. I have my windows box setup like this pretty much as well.

This is how I'd prefer my vector desktop to look, except the program launcher bar is at the top and I'm keeping the vector bar with start menu at the bottom of the screen.
I'm using vector linux 6.0 standard with xfce/compiz. My main setup is on user steven not root.
I tried to access those files via gui on the root account, they must be hidden because they don't show in the folder.
Can someone tell me how to change those file permissions so I can delete them from the desktop?
I have an icon for file system and home on my bottom start bar, just in case I still need to access them, I can also still access them via thunar in the console if necessary. I know this may not be important to some, but I want my custom setup to look and work how I'd like, and thats one point of why I like linux so much, because its generally configurable for everything you see.
I know this can be done, but I tried some stuff with chmod but I'm not finding a way to get this thing done. Again, its a little thing but its very important to me to make the system look and work how I prefer it to.
Any help, I'm all ears, Thanks to everyone so far, this new setup is my best ever.... Will post screen shots as soon as I get this done, it all looks fantastic... Almost all setup now except for this and a few other little interface improvements I want to make....
