One option:

  • Install ADW Launcher as your home application and set it as default
  • From your home screen press Menu Button->More->ADWSettings to open ADW's settings
  • Select UI Settings->Main Dock Style->None to hide the bottom bar
  • Optionally, you can also select Screen Preferences->Hide StatusBar to hide the status bar at the top, which effectively makes your home take up the entire screen.
