Start Menu in win xp

How do I change the icon in the new XP start menu?

Also, I've seen some screen shots of peoples desktops, and the start button says something else. How can I do that?

I'm going to have to try this. I hate that stupid big green button. I could never get themexp to stick for me, it always reverted back to 'standard windows' theme.

I think the taskbar is much better in XP. I'd never go back to classic view. They really made some great improvements in the UI of the task bar.

Its just the damn color of the button. It doesn't make sense. If I want to change my color to 'silver' then why wouldn't the button color change too? Strange...

I might have to try and hack the orange 'X' button too. That kind of bugs me.
