Drag the file to the desktop from rox.
To find where the file is, do:
which filename in terminal
When you have the file on the desktop, right click the file and choose file "filename" > set icon and drag an icon into the box area.

btw, it helps if you open 2 rox's at the same time to do this.

There's also a video tutorial for this (which I found helpful) on the video tutorial page.

Existing desktop icons reside in /usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps
