The init.m file in: C:\Documents and Settings\<yourname>\Application Data\Mathematica\FrontEnd (or similar for other languages) is not for you, it's for Wolfram's setup. The init.m file at: C:\Program Files\Wolfram\Research\Mathematica\5.2\Configuration\Kernel definitely works on Windows XP - I am using it right now!! If you have other versions then you can differentiate the init.m files by the directories they appear in \5.1\, \5.2\ etc., I suppose....
