[CentOS] Persistent desktop icons ?

Is it possible to configure persistent desktop icons, e. g. shortcuts
that users can't delete ? On most of my client desktops, I have some
home-made shortcuts, like here for example :
The shortcut on the lower left corner of the screen launches the public
library management system.
Most of the users are quite computer-illiterate, and more often than
not, they tend to erase these shortcuts (and then call me panic-stricken
at 07:00 in the morning :oD).
To configure the shortcuts themselves, I just edit a .desktop file by
hand. I tried various combinations of chown and chmod, but to no avail.
Even if there are minimum access rights, the thing can still be erased
with a right click.
Now I vaguely remember that a standard openSUSE install has something
like persistent desktop shortcuts (for the SUSE help center or something
like that), and I wonder: how do they do it ?
Any suggestions ?
