Is it possible to insert a link to an application(s) stored on a network into a sharepoint site?

I've tried the page viewer webpart, but this only works for files/folders and does not display the application(s) icon. Essentially I want users to be able to open sharepoint and launch the application(s) from there.

Any suggestions would be grately appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

One way of achieving this is to use custom content type. Just create a list in your sharepoint site with content type as Link. You can do this by Creating new content type from Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Content Types -> Create, and there select List Content Type -> Link (parent content type). Now your lists can hold link to a Web page or other resource.
