TWEAK: Adding SuperFetch to Windows XP SP2

It is rumored on the Internet that one can get a significant performance boost on their system if they do the following:
 
1) Go to RegEdit and look up the following Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSession ManagerMemory ManagementPrefetcher
 
2) Find the value:
EnablePrefetcher = 3
 
3) Add the value: 
EnableSuperfetch = 1
 
This is purported to be a feature of Longhorn that works on Windows XP SP2 machines. 
Contrary to statements made by lame scriptkiddies however, this is HARDLY the only way that Longhorn is faster that Windows XP.
