Thanks Filip and Martin.
I found the problem in the same as you !!  Sorry about this mistake ... 
Was too speedy .

=>>>> Some news from  Reactos+Taskbar with a new build made on 
26/12/2003 :<<<<====

Just now I have Ros working in real hardware with a desktop loaded at 
boot  (without explorer)  (thanks to the last change from martin)
 From the desktop I can double click on "my computer icon" or ran explorer .
This is a good start .

I  have to clarify some problems I have seen before on the previous 
build  made about 1 week ago .
At lease 2 are corrected :
- Grey bar displayed at top of desktop screen ( at the level of "my 
computer" icon
- Double click on "My computer" icon without effect
Also in Hivesft file i disable Cmd GUI and enable explorer GUI in order 
to have the desktop loaded automatically at recatos start ( like wondow)

I will post the "problem type"  issues in Bugzilla  if any (!)

Ps : It seems reasonnable to have the desktop loaded automatically at 
ros start for the next release , if a GUI text console can be started 
from Desktop/explorer
