Is there a way that you can select the classic web view in Windows XP like
there has been in previous versions. I am more interested in finding a way to
have the folder description view in Explorer. Any ideas?

Web View & Enable Web content in Folders in XP is called Common Tasks.

Show common tasks in folders
[[Specifies that hyperlinks to common folder tasks and other places on your
computer are displayed in folders. These links appear in the left pane of
the folder window.]]

Use Windows classic folders
[[Specifies that folder contents are displayed like classic Windows folders,
which means that folder contents do not look and work like Web pages.]]

[[To display links to common tasks in folders
Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Folder Options
On the General tab, under Tasks, click Show common tasks in folders.

Notes
The hyperlinks to common tasks in the left pane of your folder windows
provide quick access to file and folder management activities and other
places on your computer, such as My Computer, Shared Documents, and My
Network Places. Windows displays these links by default, so they may already
be displayed in your folders. If they are not, you can use Folder Options to
enable this feature.
To disable this feature in your folders, on the General tab, under Tasks,
click Use Windows classic folders.]]

[[To add Web content to your desktop
Right-click a blank area on the desktop, and then click Properties.
On the Desktop tab, click Customize Desktop.
On the Web tab, click New, and then follow the instructions on your screen.

Notes
You must be connected to the Internet to add active Web content to your
desktop.
To browse Microsoft's Desktop Gallery Web site, in the New Desktop Item
Wizard, click Visit Gallery. The New Desktop Item Wizard opens when you
click New on the Web tab.
To select a different Web site, type the Web site address, or click Browse
to locate it.]]

Only on a folder by folder basis. And then you need to adjust settings from SP1 then from SP2.
