Creating a shortcut for a terminal application

After watching www.almostageek.com I was able to install the Xine Media Player on my Fedora Core 4 computer. Xine is a great application and now I can use my Linux box even more as I can watch videos on it, but the problem with Xine is you have to start it from terminal. So while playing around and learning more about Linux I discovered how to create a shortcut that allowed me to run Xine with just a simple mouse click and save me from going through terminal.

Even though this is probably the simplest thing to do for an experience Linux user, for me a complete novice it was a great achievement. I have already shared how I did it with another new Linux user and created a show video to help other new Linux users too.
