do you mean you want a menu from the bottom of the form or a menu that you can add items too ?
I started doing this once using a toolbar along the bottom of my form and using a toolbutton as the start button,and a popup menu for the menuitems.
didnt get very far into it then i left it but can send what i have got if you interested but pretty basic stuff so far.

maybe you just need something like "coolmenus"  menu components..mmm.
id say best to check here:
under the menus section and see TWPopUpMenu
TWPopupMenu deals with all of its submenus as if they are all an array of strings. It has easy functions to add menu entry and allows propertys to be set that specify at what point do the menus cascade into a new coloum (Just like the start menu, when there are more entrys then fit into the screen a new coloum is started

another one is coolmenus as it is the best looking menu components i ever seen but is not free

The start menu of Win95 you could build with the TPopUpMenu component of Delphi4 (if you assign an image list to it).
