  Hang on.  Trouble interacting with the desktop - and the main difference
between XP and 2k in this regard is the presence of fast user switching and
terminal services, both of which move the previously global desktop into the
per-user local namespace.

  Maybe switching off those two services in control panel -> Administrative
Tools -> services (a.k.a 'services.msc') will let it work?

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
