adding Buttons in Start Menu

Hello everyone,

I installed Netscape 7.1 in RedHat 9.0 and i wanted to add a button in Start-> Internet for Netscape, but i have some problems. I right clicked on the Start button -> Menu Editor -> Internet -> New Element. Then i filled in the Window Netscape, but i dont know which command should i type in order the program to be executed. Its not working neither with ./netscape nor with netscape or netscape-bin. Could you guys give some help? Thanks in advance.
