I've looked at this problem too, except I'm trying to duplicate a Windows
2000 desktop.  There's *plenty* of XP-like themes, but not much for Win2K. 
I'm planning ahead for when I can (finally) move my brother's system to
Linux, and he's a picky user who hates it if I even re-arrange his icons,
so I figure I'd want to make a desktop almost identical to what he has in
2K now.

Ultimately, the most critical app is also the most impossible to find a
native *or* Wine-compatible replacement for, namely an eBay offline auction
posting tool.
