How could I create a link to a visual force page on the homepage of salesforce?

I have a Visual force page and I want the user to be able to go to that page on click of a button on the homepage. How can I add such a button to the homepage? Thanks!

I. CREATE CUSTOM LINKS

1. Browse to: Setup | App Setup | Customize | Home | Custom Links

2. Click 'New' to add a new link and follow the on-screen prompts.


II. CREATE CUSTOM COMPONENT

1. Browse to: Setup | App Setup | Customize | Home | Home Page Components

2. Under 'Custom Components', click New.

3. Name your component that is easily identifiable such as "Links". It is recommended not to name the component "Custom Links" as the standard component is named the same and can be confusing when editing the page layout.

4. Set the component Type as 'Links', click Next.

5. Choose the links created in Section I you would like to make visible within the component, hit Save.


III. HIDE STANDARD COMPONENT AND SHOW CUSTOM COMPONENT ON HOME PAGE

1. Browse to: Setup | App Setup | Customize | Home | Home Page Layouts

2. Hit 'Edit' next to the layout you'd like to change.

3. Under the 'Select Narrow Components to Show' section, uncheck 'Custom Links' which will hide the standard custom links component.

4. Under the 'Select Narrow Components to Show' section, check 'Links' (or the name you gave the component in Section II step 3) to show the new custom component.

5. Hit 'Next' and then 'Save'.
