Running Panel Programs as Superuser

I am using RH8.0. I would like to know how I can run a program as a superuser from the Gnome Panel. I made an icon and added it to the panel, but when I click it, it runs as the current user. For some reason the program only runs correctly as superuser. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated!
