    Can't be done with XP.

    Actually, that's not entirely true. Although XP has no built-in background support for folders, I found this program that integrates into explorer, so when you click on "Customize This Folder" ... there is an additional tab that lets you select a background to display. Click a button, and voila! backgrounds in XP. :)

    Here is the link to the file from my website: http://www.geocities.com/omightymanii/backgrounds.zip

    (if the above link works "funny" .. just copy the url and paste into the address field... then it'll download)

    And here is the link to the website I got it from: http://people.ne.mediaone.net/pguyette/peter/shellicons.htm

    Enjoy everyone!
