This was posted on the Suse forums but it should work on any distro that has Gnome:

that didn't really help. for i am looking for "menu_object" and cannot locate it. try this:

alt+f2
gconf-editor
navigate through 'apps' > 'panel' > 'objects'
once there, find the object that is type "menu_object" (you can see this on the right)
check "use_custom_icon" and then double click on "custom_icon". Enter the path to one of the start buttons and it should change instantly.

Well, I'm afraid that I really don't understand what you are trying to do. I thought that you were trying to change the menu icon? AFAIK it is as easy as you described in your last post. The original icon should belong to the theme that you are using and is located either somewhere under /usr/share or in the .icons folder in your home directory.
