IceWM- making shortcuts

Ok, I have been using IceWM for a few days and I dont know how to make a shortcut or a button on the taskbar, such as "Terminal" and "Emacs", which appeared there, when I had installed IceWM. Any ideas?
And btw: what are your opinions about this window manager? I find it quite good, because it works very fast on my slow machine.

Check in your home directory. You should have a .icewm directory which will probably be empty. Copy toolbar from /usr/share/icewm into it and hack away. The format is pretty simple. I believe it's path, command and taskbar name. You can copy the other scripts and change them too.
