Default Mac theme for Windows XP?

Hi,
Does anyone know where I can find a good Mac theme for Windows XP? I'm looking for one with the "dock" thing at the bottom that has all the icons, etc. as well as the same colors... any help would be appreciated.

I am not sure Windows XP can emulate that...

I downloaded one theme that has a working "dock" (the icons get bigger and move from side to side), but it's not set up the same way as the macs I'm used to and not all of it was working.

Edit: Thanks for that link! I'll see if I can get that one to work.

you can use programs like stardock and aquadock to emulate the mac dock.

I installed it last night. Thought its pretty neat. the only downside was the bundled software with the new screens but all you have to do is remove then which is easy. The only thing that didnt work right was the Mac boot screen, everything was great
