How do I change gnome menu icon?

I'm using gnome on openSUSE 10.2 with the Tango icon theme.

Can anyone tell me how the hell I can change the gnome menu bar icon (Not the slab thing).
By default, with the default Industrial or Tango icon themes it is a pair of feet or something and in the /opt/gnome/Icons/Tango directory the feet are linked to "start-here.png" in the icon size directories and "start-here.svg" in the scalable directory.
I've tried changing the icons there but it still show the stupid feet.
I've also tried setting a custom icon in gconf-editor but it still won't change.

Aargh, I hate the stupid feet!

Same problem

Shame, have you figured this out yet? I'm going crazy with this one! I've tried everything I can think of. I want to change the text from 'Computer' to something else also. Where in the world is this being set?? It almost makes me want to go back to KDE. With KDE all you have to do is left click on the menu item and go to properties. From there you can set the icon and whatever else you want to change.

I'm afraid I haven't managed to work it out.
I know it is quite a task to change the icon on other distros too but on other distros it IS possible.
I have changed the icon on ubuntu and fedora for example but as with so many things suse has it's own way of doing things and it doesn't seem to like the user changing certain stuff.

I can't comment on the computer text, this may be possible but since I can't stand that slab thing I haven't used it long enough for the text bother me.

I'll have another poke around and see if I can work it out.
