Allow active window 2 get focus automati

By ati ·
In windows 98 if a window becomes active, it will pop-up automaticlly without any user intevention. In windows 2000 and xp, it just flashes in the taskbar, is there a way, setting that will allow windows 2000 and xp to act like windows 98 in these circumstances?

Thanks Scott

Not sure if this will help - but if you install tweakui for xp (download from microsoft site) you can prevent applications from stealing focus from the active window making them flash in the taskbar instead. If you disable this setting I assume (and we all know what assume makes!;)) that it will then allow programs to steal focus and pop up as you want them to?
Or I could be completely wrong - but TweakUi has some cool bits in it so it's worth the download anyway!
