You didn't say whether you are using Gnome, KDE, or Icewm.  If you are 
using Icewm, I may be able to shed a little light. There is one menu 
that does the job for everyone, and then it is also possible to 
override that and have your own menu/toolbar if you have your own 
.icewm/ directory in your home directory.

I believe that the global icewm menu/toolbar are in /etc/icewm/  At 
least, that's where they are in K21LTSP 3.12.  They may have moved in 
4.x, but you should still be able to find them.  Try this command:

locate icewm/toolbar

Find that menu and toolbar and make the needed changes to them and all 
should be well.  Then, if your tech wants to customize, have him copy 
them to a directory named .icewm/ in his home directory.
