Have you tried the NET SEND command? I haven't tried it yet on XP, but I suspect it should still work since XP is based on the NT engine...

At a Command Prompt, type:
NET SEND Joe Hello there Joe.
(where "Joe" is a valid username on your network)
(quotes not necessary around message)

Win9x clients will not receive NET SEND messages natively - they need an additional utility loaded at start up.

For usage, type NET SEND /?
