if i know what you're taking about, i think it depends on which window manager you're using (like blackbox, kde, or gnome). if you use kde (or maybe i'm thinking of gnome but they probably both have one) there's a dialog similar to the MS-Windows "Start --> Run" (you know, you click the little button that says start... unless you switched to linux from the mac, in which case i don't know why you switched. OS X Jag is Unix based and Panther is coming out. and the G5 looks pretty sweet.). i use fluxbox and there's something similar there too but i don't ever use it because i'm a CLI-kinda-guy (even when i use X i have a whole mess of xterms running.). so maybe i answered your question... maybe i didn't... maybe i'm wrong on everything i said. write again if that wasn't it, i'll check back and probably some other people too.
well, someone has written a better answer as i was writing my erroneous and overly lengthy one. oh well.
