Question No more icons !!

I was having a problem when logging into GNOME under redhat 9 shrike. Every time I logged in using GNOME I would get that errro about not being able to establish a connection to the corba server, well, I wiped out the directory /tmp/orbit-root as per advice given to me, now the corba error is gone, but so is my desktop wallpaper, all my icons, all my panel icons. It looks VERY bare, I'm trying to find a way to restore some defaults to the desktop but have come up short. KDE is working just beautifully, but really wanted to see what GNOME was capable of doing for me.

Try right-clicking on the desktop and from the resulting menu, launch nautilus. I think that is supposed to draw the desktop environment for Gnome.
