Well, if Shaul wants to add menu entries....

$ su -
$ cd /etc/menu
$ editor ftp
$ editor telnet
$ update-menus
$ exit

See the README in /etc/menu.  Use "<name>.local" for package names that
are locally installed and not in dpkg's database (otherwise it tries to
verify the package is installed before adding the menu entry).  Debian's
menu system should work for just about any window-manager that has a
concept of menus.  If it doesn't, that window-manager package is broken!

/bin/sh ~/.signature:
Command not found
