Hiding inactive system tray icons

my mobo has got a lan connection, so it appears in the XP sys tray.

Apart from disabling it in device manager, any ideas on how to get it to keep out of the system tray?

Control Panel, Network Connections, click on the one for your LAN connection, Properties button and take the tick out of "Show icon in notification area when connected"
