Hello all. I have a few questions on Fedora 8 that really don't fit into any of the other categories.

Is there any way to get rid of the desktop icons "Computer", "Home Folder", and "Trash"? I really hate stuff on my desktop.

How do I go about and give myself sudo privileges?

Can someone give me a guide to installing JRE for the 64 bit build of Fedora 8?

Thanks for your time,
Stall

Install gconf-editor, run it and go to apps -> nautilus -> desktop and uncheck those icons you want to hide.
