This is what I am doing:
1)  right click on the blue globe (Web Browser...)
2)  left click on "+" (Add new item)
3)  left click on launcher
4)  answer a bunch of questions, then click "+Add"
I get an icon to the right of the globe

I had to hand download all the FC6 rpm's off of pbone
(work fine in CentOS5/RHEL5).  Did I miss one?
