I am guessing that your menus are created from heading or paragraph tags, in which case the default cursor is a text selection I cursor. To change this to a hand, use the following css value in your css file for the menu elements:

cursor: pointer

To see a list of possible CSS cursor values, reference http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/ui.html#cursor-props

Hope this helps
