Question Desktop shortcut in KDE

Ok, I got most of my stuff up and running, can't believe I even got a Terminal Server client to connect to my server. Really cool!
Now, my question is the following.
I want to add a shortcut on the desktop (or link to program as Mandrake refers to). The only problem is that my shortcut path would be something like

/Programs/rdesktop/rdesktop -u Administrator -p - -f

That's where I would go in the Konsole to be able to run my Terminal Services client program. Is there a way to move that to an icon on my desktop in KDE?

Where would I put the path. I tried doing it already and haven't been able to get it to work.

Thanks so much in advance,

I think you need to create a "Launcher"

Type that command in the execute box, and I think you will probably need to select "run in terminal" as well. You can set its name and icon to whatever.

Hopefully, when you click the icon, a terminal should open, running terminal services.

I hope this helps (but I may be wrong)
