I thought that when you added a person to the administrator group on a Windows XP machine, that they would be able to Open All User, Explorer All Users, when they right clicked on the Start button. (see attached picture)

What am I missing, or what have I misunderstood? I thought the 2 were related.

Theoretically, yes, it should be available.
Practically: did you logoff and back on after changing the group membership? The user's security token (which contains his group membership) is only refreshed during logon.

Do you have the "Remove common program groups from Start Menus" Group Policy set maybe?  Its one of the Start Menu customisations you can apply, but what it doesn't tell you is that it also removes those options from the context menu.  Its the 5th item in the table on this page:
