connect desktop icons to "firefox-bin"
Assuming SUSE 10.1 is the same as 9.2, if you right click on a blank part of the desktop, go to "Create New", choose "file", choose "Link to Application". In the window that opens, clicking the picture will allow you to choose a new icon, and the text box is the name that is displayed on the icon. choose the "Application" tab to specify the path. Click the "Browse" button to specify the path, then find the file and select it. Click "OK" and that should be it. From there, you can drag the icon to your application bar to put a copy there.
Hope that works for you...
