How to change the Application menu?

I use Fedora Core 3. Can I change the application menu? Sometime I just want to re-organize it.

That depends on whether you're using Kde, Gnome, or some other. They should all have some kind of menu editor. It Kde, it's kmenuedit.

There is not easy tool to add/remove/modify the application menu in FC3, but it is possible, cd to /usr/share/applications and take a look at any of the .desktop files.

The Categories is where you specifiy where the application appears in the menu.
