Add Undock to Start Menu

Is there a way to add the "Undock PC" button to the Start Menu in XP Pro? I know there's a Group Policy and registry hack to remove it but I can't find any way to add it. This is on a Dell Latitude E6400 running XP Pro SP2. On previous Dells (C and D series) the option always became available as soon as the laptop was docked.

Thanks!

Registry Edit go to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer

You should see an entry:

NoStartMenuEjectPC

Delete it (back up that key first.)
