Start by right-clicking on the desktop, select Properties, select
Effects, and turn off virtually everything.  Then select the "Windows
Classic" look and feel instead of the XP teletubby bloat layer.  Then
open up any folder, go to Options, select Windows Classic Folders, and
"Make all folders look like this."

There's a few things XP hides in different places.  You'll have to ask
someone who uses XP where the rest are.  I consider XP a downgrade from
2000 (mainly due to the "All your IP are belong to Microsoft" license,
the teletubby interface, and the staggering level of bloat), and have
never downgraded our 2000 boxen.
