    I guess you could make a transparent icon and name it a space.

    Or to remove it goto Display Properties, select the Desktop Tab and click the "Customize Desktop" button and your option is there.

    or if you have xp pro, hit windows key + r and them type gpedit.msc .
    click the administrative templates under user configuratinon and then click on the word desktop. in the right pane look for "Remove Recycle Bin icon from desktop". right click on that and then go to enable. click ok, exit out of Group Policy editor. right click on the desktop and go to "refresh"
