Not sure how you were able to rename your iDisk (if in fact you actually did). On my Finder's sidebar is a link that says "iDisk" -- if I bump up a level where I can see all of the volumes mounted on the right side, my iDisk has my account name on it. Neither of these can be renamed.

The iDisk on the desktop isn't called iDisk like other peoples, it's called my account name.

Ah... The one on my desktop has my account name too. I was able to rename it in the Terminal, but then it disappeared off my desktop. It came back when I renamed it back.

I don't think you can change it, unless there is some unknown terminal command you can use to change how it is displayed on your desktop.

Sorry, I realise that I'm absolutely no help whatsoever :-D
