Default Custom icon

Hi all,

(This should be very easy) Debian Etch and KDE desktop. I installed
virtualbox and want to add a custom icon for it. I have the icon file
already. So here are the questions:

1. What format does the icon have to be in?
2. I noticed that there are different locations for icons..../usr/share/icons
and /usr/share/pixmaps to name 2 that I easily found. Where should I be
putting this custom icon?

Thanks,

Mark

I don't believe it matters too much. Icons I've made myself, I save as .png.
Others in my ~/Icon file are .xpm, .xbm (which is one I altered from a logo
for xsynth).

Myself, for the ones I've created, I make an Icon dir in ~/, and it's easy
enough to just point the desktop launcher to that Icon dir to use a specific
icon.

Perfect! Exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks.
