It may seem trivial but I'd like to change that icon to something more to my liking. Is this possible? Thanx.

You need a picture as an .icns file. Search for a freeware converter if you need to. Then ctrl-click on the HD and select "Get Info". Drag and drop the .icns on top of the icon in the Get Info box.

EDIT: Its the smaller icon in the upper left corner of the Get Info box.
