Starting SSH connections simply with SSHMenu
SSHMenu adds a button to your GNOME panel that displays a configurable drop-down list of hosts that you have might like to connect to with SSH.
SSHMenu is packaged and available in repositories for both Ubuntu (as sshmenu-gnome) and Fedora (gnome-applet-sshmenu).

In those, the button for the SSH menu is started in its own window and an xterm is started when you wish to connect to a host with SSH.
