Where in XP?

Where in WinXP would I find the equivalent of Win95, 98, Me, 2000 etc "Start-up" folder that controls which programmes and applications open at boot-up?

Where in XP?

Hi

On my wifes computer I use start/run and then type in "msconfig" which seems to work ok for her machine.

Hope that helps
