Taskbar Groups in XP

Since there's no easy way to search for a question involving Windows XP, excuse me if this has been answered.

XP has this nice feature that it groups similar programs on the tasbar. However, I do not want this grouping for certain programs (ie, IE), and the grouping seems arbitrary anyway; XP grouped mIRC and a DCC send, and at some point ungrouped them. Is there any way to manually group programs, or choose which programs you want to be affected by grouping? I suspect this is a typical Microsoft feature: poorly implemented, not becoming useful until 3 OS revisions down the line.

I think there's no manual way to arrange the groups right now. XP just groups the same program together when space gets crowded (depending on your monitor size and resolution, probably around 4-6 different programs).
