Let me know if this works for you:
To add Draw to the menu in gnome:

* Select Applications --> Accessories --> Alacarte Menu Editor
* left-click Office in left column
* On the menu bar, left-click File, left-click New Entry
* The Entry Editor opens:
	Name: Draw
	Comment:	Create and edit drawings
	Command:	ooffice -draw %U
	left-click No Icon, left-click Browse...
		scroll up or down to icons
		left double-click icons
		left double-click Human
		left double-click 24x24
		left double-click apps
		click on open
		left double-click ooo-draw.png
		left-click OK.
* Left-click close

Draw is now in the Office menu and works like the rest of OpenOffice. 

        Don't let anyone steal your dream!
