    I, myself, don't know the answer but I'm 
responding in hopes that one of the other 
readers of this list will reply with helpful 
info. Here's my understanding of your problem: 

    "I decided to install PCLinuxOS. [Mom] did 
something to make the 'start menu' icon disappear.  
Alt-F1 still works to get the main menu.  
Anyone know how this could happen, or better 
yet, how to get the icon back?"
