custom menu additions


I am trying to add a custom menu addition of applications.

I am currently creating a directory under:

I am then doing an nfs mount to this directory, so NEW_DIR is really an nfs mount point. This would allow for me to make changes accross the enterprise, without having to go to each workstation.

It seems that sometimes the mount point disappears after logging out or reboot...

Is there a way to make this directory NEW_DIR permanent?

Can someone point me to an indepth document to how this tree get populated on login...?

What I would like to do...

/share/dot_desktop_files is an automount export...
mount --bind /share/dot_desktop /var/lib/menu/kde/Applications/NEW_DIR
in an /etc/rc script...

and have this last through logouts etc...

RE: custom menu additions

The solution I put in place... in each users home directory...

ln -s /share/dot_desktop_files $HOME/.kde/share/applnk-redhat/NEW_DIR

Similar to our Solaris solution for the .dt/dtwmrc...
