Floppy icon on desktop


I'm using gnome 2.4.1 in Mandrake 10 CE.. How do I get rid of that floppy icon on the desktop? I've tried right clicking > Disks > and clicking floppy but that does nothing.. Anyone?

I've tried pressing delete while it's highlighted but that doesn't work.. And yeh if you right click and go under drives on the desktop floppy is ticked but when I click it, it doesn't untick
