The title says everything. How do I put an icon on a dotpup I'm putting together so that it will appear on the program automatically when it's been installed?

the icon is a hidden file named .DirIcon, in the roxapp folder ... it can be an xpm, or a jpg, or a png, maybe a gif ... some icons don't work, some do

Thanks, Guest Too. That's what I thought, but it wasn't working. Must be something with the file I was using.
