    Doesn't look like there's an easy way to do it, if at all. See the following thread in the Apple discussion forum:

    This worked:

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you want. If all you want is for the desktop icon to say iDisk instead of coitalbunny or whatever your MobileMe id is, that's not so hard:

    1. Create an alias to the drive on the desktop. Name it iDisk.
    2. Turn the actual iDisk desktop icon off.

    You can do #2 using either the Finder > Preferences > General if you don't have external drives, or I'm sure you can use one of several tweaking programs available for Mac to turn off just that one icon. You can also use one of those tweaking programs to get rid of the little alias arrow on your new iDisk alias so that it looks and behaves like a drive icon.
