Question Editing the GNOME menu in FC2

How in the world do I edit the "Start" menu in GNOME running FC2? Sometimes when I remove an RPM to uninstall a program that program's icon is still in the menu. As a regular user when I right click the menu item "Remove this item" is dimmed and I cannot delete it. As root I can select "Remove this item" but all I get is an error "This operation is not supported."

Sometimes when I install a program it places icons for itself in several different menus in the main GNOME menu. For example, I just updated my Pan newsreader to the latest version and now icons for Pan are in the Internet menu, the Games menu, the Preferences menu, and the Sound & Video menu. I also installed CrossOver Office so I can run Office XP and now my Office XP apps are also listed under 4 or 5 differnet menus.

It's really no big deal, everything runs fine, I'd just like to know how to cleam up my GNOME menu.
