Windows XP Startmenu

I apologize if this issue has already been addressed, I searched around a bit and could not find anything relevant.

Preamble: What I want is a Windows XP style start menu. Basically you click on "Start" and a menu comes up with a header stating the users name, two columns with different styles (left white, right blue) and then a footer with logout/shut down at the bottom. The header and footers need image backgrounds and the two columns can be done with styles.

1. I have found how to make two columns but this seems to display items on alternate sides instead of as I would like specify which column an item belongs to. For example I may want to have 5 items on the right column and 2 on the left, this is not possible as far as I can see.
2. I cannot see how I can add html to the top/bottom of a menu (my header/footer)

I think if those questions are answered I should be able to figure out the rest. Thanks for your assistance.

you can put type=header;text=Username
in the menu item. if that's what you were going for. and just user javascript or jsp (or whatever you're using) to set the variables
