Adding programs shortcuts to gnome/kde menus

Hello,

I want to add program shortcuts to gnome and kde menus like in windows. I want the following structure in start menu:
MyApplication->
      AppExec
      AppUnInstall
      Manuals->
            Doc1
            Doc2

I successfully added these items in RH 9. But in SuSE 9.1, I don't see the files what I see in RH 9. e.g., /etc/X11desktop-menus directory is absent. Instead it uses /etc/xdg/menus. So, I am confused. I want to add these shortcuts in different linux distributions. How can I do it? Where can I get the related documentation?

thanks,
shimsha

For KDE, you could do all that manually with "K menu -> Settings -> Menu Editor". Look up menu editor at www.kde.org to see where it writes, so you can automagically do this.

Making it work on all distros would be very hard, since they use different packaging systems (the uninstall part).
