    You can sort of fake it. Make a shortcut to something like mydocuments or
    the c drive and name it ------- or ________ and find a blank icon then put
    the shortcut on the start menu where you want it or where you can put it. It
    may not go everywhere but you can put it in some places.

    From a Google Search....


    The first thing to do is create a new shortcut on the desktop. Select any
    file for the target, and under the name of the shortcut, use the trick to
    add a blank space for the filename (ALT+0160 on the keypad -- making sure
    NUMLOCK is on). Then click finish.

    Next right click the file and choose properties -- change icon. You should
    automatically be browsing the windows\system32\shell32.dll folder. About 1/4
    down the list, choose one of the blank icons (or another icon you may want
    to use). Then click OK. You can also remove the target. You now have a
    completely blank icon on the desktop.

    Now just drag the blank icon to the XP start menu and you now have a
    seperator.

    All the best,
