Is there any way to hide the VNC server icon from the taskbar?

Well... the official word from the RealVNC people is this:
Q: Can I hide the taskbar icon created by the Windows VNC Server?
No, not without changing and recompiling the source code. We feel that there would be few legitimate uses of VNC where you would need to conceal its operation. However, there might be occasions where you would not want the user of the server machine to be able to adjust the WinVNC settings, password, etc, so access to the VNC Server Configuration can be disabled. See the DisableOptions setting in the VNC Server for Windows documentation.
Update: Okay, about.com has a little thingie about being able to hide any system tray icons, but when following the instructions they have listed, I could not find what they were talking about so YMMV. (I have Win2000, this might be XP only or something...)
To manage this area, simply right click the Taskbar, and choose Properties. In the Properties window that appears, on the Taskbar tab, check the box next to "Hide Inactive Icons" if it isn't already checked, and then click the "Customize..." button. That will bring up a window that allows you to choose one of three behaviors for each program icon that appears in the system tray: "Hide when inactive," "Always hide," or "always show."
