One couldn't do it in XP by design.
You can't (easily anyway) as it is designed to prevent anyone but the user
from pinning items. This is because a lot of crappy programs added icons to
Quick Launch, top level Start, a folder in Start, an icon on the desktop,
and an app to run in System Notification area (not to mention toolbars).
