I recommend to use the AddFolderIcon() function for setting the shortcuts, especially if you want to customize them during runtime.

MSDE customizing:
I'm using SQLDMO to add db's, users, etc.
I posted some code to connect to a server over here:

Check out the docs on SQLDMO to see how you add db's, etc.
