U guys r so crazy... do a search on the forum... it's a bug that is fixed if you update Mandrake. You can also change to root in the console and do an update-menus -v and it will fix your menu. If you screw up and do update-menus -v it as a normal user and all your icons disappear, just reboot and it makes them come back (it did for me anyways).
