and HOME, this should be possible in gconf-editor in the location:
There are two booleans: home-icon_visible and trash_icon_visible. Switch
them to FALSE (remove the tick) and the icons will disappear.

In GNOME 3, the icons will not show by default. In GNOME 2, playing
with gconf is one way and another shortcut is:
