You can drag a program Icon and drop it onto the start button.  I ends up in a flder named Start Menu.  THe actual location of that folder will vary, depending upon the version of Windows.  For Windows 98, it is at:

   C:\Windows\Start Menu

There is a programatic way to access this folder.  Maybe someone will explain it to you for 75 points.  

If your request is to place an item *directly* above the Shutdown item in the Start Menu, you will have even more difficult task.  The lower part of this menu is actually a set of shell extensions that will require some specialized programming to create and then register.

in MSDN, click the 'Search' tab in the column on the left.  TYpe this into the 'Type in the words(s) to search fo" input area (include the quote markes"

   "start menu" and "shell extension"

That will get you into the general neighborhood of the information you seek.
