To add a submenu, somewhere under the section headed 'AddToMenu "StartMenu"'
put in a line such as this:
+ "Name_Of_Submenu%mini-icon.xpm%" Popup Name_Of_Submenu
The '%mini-icon.xpm%' isn't necessary, but you can replace it with the
name of an actual mini-icon.xpm icon from your '/usr/share/icons/mini/'
Then, you would create another section, with the header
with a number of lines under that containing the necessary info about the
contents of the submenu.
