Question Lost Trash, Computer, and Home icons on my desktop

I downloaded Fedora Core 4 yesterday and installed it.

I have been trying to get everything set to my personal preference. All of a sudden, my trash, computer, and home icons on my desktop just disappeared. I have tried many different things to get them back and have had no luck so far.

I am using KDE version: 2.4.0-6 Red Hat

If anyone has an suggestions, please let me know.

This might sound silly but did you accidentally uncheck the " show icons on desktop " box in behaviour of the settings for KDE desktop? Right click and choose configure desktop then behaviour, its the first box.

Unfortunately, that was not the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion!
