Question Change K-menu icon on Suse 9?

I just installed Suse 9.0 (I was using Redhat 9). The user menu and the root menu are a little different under KDE. This is probably a dumb question, but is there any way to edit the icons on the K-Menu? I'm wanting to change the "K" under root to the Chameleon icon that the users have. Can this be done?

the image i think is probably in something like
and i am sure when you find where it is located (the image file .png) for the menu, then you can simply replace it. ..
cp /the/new/image.png /usr/share/pixmaps/image.png

Thanks for the idea. That wasn't the correct directory, but the idea worked. I replaced the "kmenu.png" file with the one I wanted (you may have to rename it first) and that did the trick. If anyone wants the path for Suse9, its:

/opt/kde3/share/icons/crystalsvg/48x48 (which would depend on the size of your kmenu I think)

Thanks again.
