Creating Shortcuts


I'm running "Roger Wilco" and "Ventrilo" (voice communication programs) servers on this Red Hat 9 machine, and I'd like to create shortcuts on my desktop to run them easily. All the roger wilco files are in
Code:
/home/ryan/rwbase/
and to run them I cd to that directory, and run this:
Code:
 nohup ./run_rwbs &
, becaue according to the instructions that makes it restart if it crashes, and get's it out of the terminal window. Ok, so on the desktop after I right click and go to "New Launcher", what would I type in the command area, to execute that command from that directory?

Also, I was wondering if there is a shortcut to start a terminal window, instead of having to right click on the desktop everytime. BTW, I'm using gnome.

Thanks a lot

I think you should be able to make the link
Code:
nohup /home/ryan/rwbase/run_rwbs &
