Add folder to Start Menu

Anyone know how I can add another folder shortcut to the XP Start Menu, alongside "My Documents", "My Pictures", etc?

Right click the Start button, select Explore. Browse to the directory you want the new folder in, right click and select a new folder.

Alternatively create it on the desktop and drag 'n' drop it.

I'm not sure that I made my question clear. I want to add a shortcut to an often-used, existing, folder to the Start Menu, next to "My Documents", "My Pictures", etc. so that I can click that shortcut and go straight to it. I know I can put a shortcut on the Desktop, but if it's possible, I'd like to put it in the main Start menu

Right click on folder and while holding down the button, drag it to the start button, after a short delay the menu will open, drop the folder where you want it and from the pop up menu select create shortcut here.
