10.3-4: Create a System Preferences Dock Folder
Authored by: hoodsmom on Jun 05, '08 02:33:37PM

I had installed PrefsMenu, but discovered I wasn't using it much because there were only a few System Preference Panes I actually use frequently and it was almost as much of a hassle to dig thru all the PrefsMenu choices as to find them in System Preferences. And PrefsMenu was yet another login item.

I did this instead: Logged in as root, which allowed me to create aliases of the desired preference panes located in /System/Library/Preference Panes. Dragged the aliases out of the system folder into new folder and dragged the new folder to the dock. If desired, you can find the icon for the preference pane by right-clicking on it and showing the package contents. The icon is in the Resources folder.
