First i have a 4 gig drive just for OS and temp folder. Then I use three top toolbars that i have premade on my d drive. The first thing i do after reformating is i load the toolbar up and bing access to all my drives , programs and utilities. I also keep my program file folder on my d drive so that i do not need to install my programs most of them work(adobe, macromedia things like this work great) I suggest trying this as i can reformat ad have my computer set back up in a matter of about 60 minutes.

yea, that would be really slick looking and i would easily do it if they would have the bar at the top HAVE THE SAME THEME AS UR START BAR. WHY DID THEY LEAVE IT TO LOOK LIKE WIN2k/98/ME/NT, that makes it look terrible compared to how nice it would look if it looked like the XP blue theme

I found a top bar very annoying, gnome on suse linux had one.

I try and avoid cluster. I have Trillian [www.trillian.cc] on the right, docked onto my desktop, and I have my start bar at the bottom [set on auto-hide].

I try and avoid cluster as I only have a screen res of 1024x768... if I had a res of 1600+ then I'd have toolbars, etc, covering most of my desktop. But I don't... :(

here is where auto-hide becomes a very wonderful feature cause you only need to look at the toolbar when you are accessing it. Otherwise you don't see it or my bottom one at that.
