1. Ok what I said was you are on the right way to doing it

2. Heres the easy way.....
Right Click on the Applications Menu Click on Edit Menus.  I think you
can figure the rest out it's pretty easy.

OK manually you can put the *.desktop entry into /YourHomeDir/.gnome
or /home/.kde

Thankfully I had to learn the hard way.  You get the easy way.  Took me
a whole afternoon to figure it out.
