No, you just can't edit the GNOME start menu as you would with KDE...
Sorry, but it's one of the most annoying things about GNOME, I'm affraid.
There is some "trick" going around these newsgroups to enable menu-editing
in GNOME, but it *can* cost you you're whole GNOME setup ! (It did so in
*my* case anyway :-(
