"Stat" icon?  Do you mean "Start" button?  If so, then you can just right click the Taskbar, select Toolbars from the Context Menu that scrolls up, then on the next scroll-out put a check mark next to Quick Launch.  Then just make a shortcut for the program you want to start and drag it into the Quick Launch toolbar.

Or maybe you already have that Quick Launch toolbar, since you talk about the icons for Internet Explorer and Outlook (Express?)  Then just find the program you want to make a shortcut for, right click it, select "create shortcut on desktop" (I believe that is the correct wording, I'm not logged into Win98 right now), then you drag that shortcut from the desktop down onto the Quick Launch toolbar.  If there is not enough room to drag it, then you put your mouse cursor on the right end of the Quick Launch toolbar until it turns into two pointing arrows, and then you can drag that line to the right in order to make the toolbar bigger.
