Mozilla installer stuck on OSX desktop - Mac Applications & Software

I downloaded Mozilla 1.4 and installed it. Installation was pretty simple - involved dragging the Mozilla icon in the installer window into another folder on the hard drive. Mozilla itself works, but I can't get rid of the installer icon that refuses to leave the desktop. I can't drag it into the trash can or anywhere else. It thinks it's a hard drive or something. Is there any way to get rid of this thing? or at least get it off the desktop and to some place less obvious....

    Default Mozilla installer stuck on OSX desktop

    I downloaded Mozilla 1.4 and installed it.
    Installation was pretty simple - involved dragging the
    Mozilla icon in the installer window into another folder
    on the hard drive.

    Mozilla itself works, but I can't get rid of the installer
    icon that refuses to leave the desktop. I can't drag it into
    the trash can or anywhere else. It thinks it's a hard drive
    or something.

    Is there any way to get rid of this thing? or at least get
    it off the desktop and to some place less obvious.

    The computer came with OS 9.2 along with OSX installed by default,
    but I've never used OS 9.2 on this computer. It never occurred to
    me to try that. Thanks.
