I would like to customize a desktop icon for my website. So, when someone makes a shortcut on thier desktop to my website it will have a customized icon, not just a IE icon, or Firefox icon (whatever the case may be).

If you are not sure what I mean, go to ebay.com, drag the little icon in the address bar of your browser onto your desktop to make a shortcut to that website. They have a cute little icon that matches their 'ebay' logo that then appears on your desktop.

I would like to do something similar.

Can anyone tell me how, or steer me in the right direction?

Thanks, groovy guys and gals!
