Unfortunately, the desktop is just another directory. As such it
wouldn't make sense to have icons on it be anything other than files. It
shouldn't be too hard to write a quick script to copy a netscape.desktop
file to everyone's .gnome-desktop directory. In the future, you should
be able to add that to /etc/skel.
