Now I'm really messed up.  Turns out the Computer icon won't remove with the "Remove
icons from all user's desktops".  When I drop the icon on it I just get the message
"Drag-and-drop a file......" basically the same message I get when I double click the
icon.  Can Computer not be removed from the Gnome Desktop?

And I have 2 icons that are actually links to other folders, one icon called "Drop" that
links to /home/Drop and another called "Public" that links to /home/Public.  I drop them
on the "Push icons to all user's desktops" and nothing happens.  Can links not be pushed?

help!

Jim
