How did I add a 'Trusted Site' when the security tab is not displayed

We have a user who on their W2K machine has a trusted site, that needs to be transferred to their new Win XP build with IE6-SP2. The security tab in Internet Options is disabled so we're unable to do it that way.

If I run IE as administrator on the old machine I can't see the site listed under trusted sites, so am wondering how this was set originally.

Scan with antivirus and antispyware programs using the latest reference definitions.
If this PC is in a business environment, the Security may have been disable by a Group Policy.

Even though an old reference it still may help.
