I think I figured out what happened. I went to the redhat-main-menu.png 
and it is the same one I used to see on my panel. So, I thought 
something might have happen to change it to the gnome foot when I 
changed to a different desktop theme after ungrading to FC1. I changed 
back to the bluecurve theme and restarted the desktop and my RedHat icon 
is back. It's just a little odd that I used to switch themes in HR9 all 
the time and this never happened before.
