Question How to modify SuSE menu? (9.2pro, KDE)

SuSE 9.2 Pro, KDE, stock install 3 days ago, everything working correctly.

I installed Firefox and want to add it to the SuSE menu under "Internet" but can't figure out how to modify, add or remove ANY part of the SuSE menu. The program and location are insignificant to this topic though, as there are several additions I will want to make as I configure this new system.

Under Mandrake I could go graphically through their system configuration program (not KDE Control Center) to the menu configuration program (menudrake I believe) from which I could modify the program menu. I can't find that config util anywhere in SuSE. I've looked all through YaST and KDE Control Center as well as anything sounding promising within the menu already. The only similar topic I can find online is the Gnome question about the SuSE menu from a couple days ago here on LQ, but I cannot use the commands found there as KDE is completely different.

Someone wanna tell me what I've overlooked? I'm sure SuSE has a way to modify the menu. Can someone point me to my blindspot? Thanks!

I have SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional, and in that, you can right-click on the KMenu, and select "Menu Editor". I'm guessing it's the same in 9.2.

Yup. Right-click on the SuSE menu icon to find Menu Editor. Good call. I knew it would be something too obvious. :$
