Vista [support.microsoft.com] is great for this. In XP the easiest way I remember to tweak the Places Bar was via the TweakUI tools. Other than that you have to look at Registry hacks for programs outside the Office family [support.microsoft.com].

I haven't tried this but...
Open the registry editor and navigate to the following key. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ComDlg32\PlacesBar If it doesn't exist, create it. If if does exist, rename it and create a new one (that way you can easily revert to old settings).
Create a value named Place0 This value should be a string or a DWORD Use a string for personal directories. Use a DWORD for system directories. This must be a CSIDL value as listed in the link below. Repeat for Place1, Place2, etc.
