need hint for button icons

hi-
i d like to put an icon to a created button . The Button is there, but i only can see it when i move mouse over, cos there is no icon.
When i go to CUSTOMIZE BUTTONS under the current configuration, i can see the button to be assigned, but when i use CHANGE ICON, a file window opens, asking where the icon is.
Now what format does the icon have if i should make my own, or where can i point to for button icons anyway?
thanks
tonne

Icon format. 16x16 I believe


The file window should have indicated to you at the bottom of it what it is looking for...

it asks "icon files" - but i dont know how to make one. 
I guess just a pict 16x16 and then rename it with .ico suffix wont do the job.
should i give up?
thanks again

I've used this site to convert 16x16 PNG images (w/ transparent background when necessary) to icons for use as foobar buttons, it works very well.
