OS 10.5 - Hiding / Not Automatically Mounting a NTFS Partition

Just upgraded to 10.5 and now everytime I reboot the computer... it automatically mounts and displays my NTFS Windows Partition on the desktop.

I have unchecked all the drivers from the Finder Preferences and none of my other partitions show up.

Any ideas on how to hide this partition or make it so it doesn't mount everytime I reboot? I am able to remove it from the sidebar permanently... just not the desktop.


QUOTE Thanks
