Basic question re: gnome panel

I've got Neverwinter Nights installed on my computer and am able to execute it if I go to /home/user/NWN and run the comman ./nwn

I want to add a link to this to my gnome panel for easy access. How do I do this? I've created an icon and linked it to the command /home/user/NWN/nwn but this does not work; when I double click on it nothing happens.

Is there something special I have to do to make it execute as ./nwn ?

Well, for xmms, the link just points to the command "xmms." For mozilla, it is "mozilla %u," and for Return to Wolfenstein, it is "et."

I tried making the command only "nwn" and I get the error saying that it couldn't find the file. If I point exactly to the directory, I don't get an error-- just nothing happens.
