    is it possible to create a shortcut for an option in system preferences, so it can be placed in the dock?

    The only reason I am asking is becuase I use medialink to enable my PS3 to 'talk' with my powerbook for streaming movies etc. I need to open sys pref everytime I need to start/stop the application. If the app shortcut was in the dock, this would make it slightly quicker. Is it possible?

    thanks

    Where did you install the preference pane? Is it in ~/Library or /Library?

    You can drag that preference pane into the Dock.

    You should be able to make an alias to it. Failing that I'd just use Quicksilver to invoke it.
