Installing Phosphor in the Windows XP Start Menu

For quite some time, I've been going online to Phosphor. Phosphor is a first person shooter written entirely in Shockwave; it actually runs in your browser. So far it work equally well in Internet Explorer and Firefox. See "Related Links" below for the Phosphor web site.

Of course, URL is hard to remember. And when I want to play a game, I just want to click on an icon. I don't want to look up the game. So I want to install Phosphor into the Start Menu like every other game I have.

Fortunately, Microsoft Internet Explorer has a nifty "Create Shortcut" feature. Simply right-click on any web-page and select "Create Shortcut" from the pop-up menu. Internet Explorer will place the shortcut on your desktop.

After the desktop shortcut has been created, simply drag the shortcut to the Start button and drop it on any folder you wish. I dropped it into game of course. It's that easy!

I don't know how to do the same in Firefox, nor do I know if it is feasible. If you know how, feel free to chime in.
