Default Windows xp look like vista?

hi, i'm trying to make xp look like vista... i so far got "brico-pack-vista-inspirat-crystalxp.net-213013946" installed, but it still uses the same xp start menu lay-out...although it did change the start menu button and to the color black.

i'm also looking to see if there's a way to have that cool aero glass look on xp... ,thanks

I downloaded the vista transformation pack and it made my computer look pretty identical to vista. It had the glass and everything, I liked it but had to take it off since I'm getting a new hard drive soon but when I get the new one, I might put it back.

If you download "Tweak UI" you can take it off the desktop. go to www.download.com and search for it. That's what I use to take the trash can icon off my computer and it works good. It's also free.
