I am not sure about Win2K, but in Win98, the link is C:\windows\application data\microsoft\internet explorer\quick launch

Do a search on your hard drive for "show desktop.scf" (include quotes in the search).

If you find a file copy to c:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch directory (where <username> is your logon name).

If you don't find a file you can create one (it's a text file) by starting Notepad and copying the following lines to a new file:

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Save the file as "Show Desktop.scf" (again, include the quotes due to the space). Save the file to the above mentioned directory.

There you go! Now that wasn't so hard was it?

Enjoy,
