    From XP HELP:
    To add a shortcut to the Classic Start menu
    [[You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the
    Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer
    is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from
    completing this procedure.

    Right-click the Start button, and then click Open All Users.
    On the File menu, point to New, and then click Shortcut.
    Follow the instructions in the Create Shortcut Wizard.
    Notes

    Any shortcuts you add will appear on the menu you specified for all users
    who log on to the computer.
    An administrator can cut, copy, delete, rename, or move shortcuts for a
    group of users. For example, an administrator might want all users to have
    WordPad listed in the Start menu.
    To add a shortcut on the Start menu to each user's personal profile folder,
    on the first screen of the Create Shortcut Wizard, type %userprofile%, click
    Next, and then in Type a name for this shortcut, type a generic name (for
    example, Your user profile folder). ]]
