I'm not familiar with the Netbook-remix, but I would think that you would have to 'right-click' on the panel.  Then select "add to panel"
Then, you have the option to 'add' a launcher?

At least, that's the way it works in the other version of Ubuntu.

Hi fraser
Is the item you want to create in your main Applications (start) menu? You can right-click those items to create desktop launchers too!

Here it is, just open terminal and put this: gconf-editor, it will open a window, there you go, apps - - - nautilus - - -preferences - - -in the category "show desktop" put the value on true and the icons will appear on the desktop.
