Two ways:

1) Click the eject button on all your disks..

2) Whiteout on the screen?

3) collapse side bar to the icons,
3a) then wait for mouseover to identify the drive
3b) give the drives custom icons

The eject icon just says those devices are ejectable. Why is this a problem?

I used to work very fast on repetitive tasks, so in many many ways I ended clicking to that little "Eject" icon and have to reconnect the external Drive again and again... In Leopard it doesn't remember the last Extrenal Drive you used last so, I need to click on another and then in the same one to begin looking for the file I need, and sometimes I eject the disk... maybe it's I'm clumsy or my mouse it's too slow but I really want to erase that button... terminal? maybe? please help me in this one. thanx

Less coffee might help.

No idea how to "erase" that widget... but your mentioning Terminal gave me an idea.
Open a Terminal window (in an unused Space maybe, to keep it out of the way). Then
cd /Volumes/name_of_disk
By merely keeping that Terminal session "parked" in that working directory, the OS will
refuse to eject the disk... instead giving you a dialog stating that the volume is busy.

Not elegant I admit... but, this "issue" is not one most users find to be any problem.
[equivalently, you could open any file on the disk... like some meaningless text file.]
