Where can I get XP style Icons that are free and have no royalty charges?

Does anyone know of a site that has free XP stlye icons that are also 'royalty free'. Also, I would like to use some of the icons from the new FireFox release, does anyone know what license the artwork (icons) with that application are under?

I'm looking for some nice icons to spruce up an application I'm about to start distributing, just don't want to get nailed for copyright violations regarding the icons..... KDE and GNOME icons are fine as long as their free and are under some sort of GPL license.

PLEASE MAKE NOTE THAT THE LICENSE OF THE ICONS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WITHIN THIS QUESTION!!!

There are several good free icon programs out there.

Why not draw you own icons.  Try looking on www.tucows.com and look for things like FREE "ICON EDITOR".

There are many good resources posted by all experts, so I think the points should split.

Some links where duplicate.
Some people don't get it - if I wanted to draw my own icons, I would of.....
Some people posted links to icons, but there was no license info.
Some people think I want to skin the whole computer.

No points for those people.

Points split between Rubiconx and RSDN
