I'm not sure what you mean by this.  Give me a bit more clue?

It's not elegant, but here's one way to get your gopdit icon.  Right-click on 
the desktop and choose Appearnce Settings.  The first item on that menu is 
Type - change it to Folder View.  While you are in that mode you can treat the 
desktop almost the same as the KDE3 one.  Now the right-click on the desktop 
brings up a menu that allows you to create a link to a device or file, just as 
on the old desktop.  When you've got your icon made, drag it onto the panel.  
You can then change the type back to Desktop.  Job done.

Don't forget UserBase for help, and keep asking.  I'll help all I can.
