If you are using KDE, try, as root, the following:


It helps if you fill in your profile so it shows which distro you are using.

It will help to tell us which window manager you're using. KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox,Xfce, etc

In addition to tredegar's post, KDE also has the menu editor under the Utilities menu. It's a graphical "tree" view of your menu. You can add an entry anywhere you want it.
