GNOME - problems with menu editing and icon change

Hello, I'm using RHEL 4 WS, but FC3 is also here, I think
GNOME 2.8 Default
first, I can't change icons in my 'computer'. I open properties of CD-ROM, for example, click on 'change icon'. But icon doesn't change..

Also, I can't edit menu in GNOME. For Example, I open Applications -> Net -> IRC (xchat), click on properties with right mouse button, but all menus are disabled! (also under root). Why? How to edit menu?

Unfortunately what you want to do is (for some reason completely beyond me) rather complicated. The only way to change icons and app names/descriptions is by finding the corresponding ".desktop" file (which doesn't always have a very descriptive name) and modifying those parameters as root. That means it's not only complicated but also applies to all users on the system.

(If anybody knows of any other way to do this please enlighten me)
