Just tried this, and it didn't work :-( but looks like I'm not the only one. Guessing maybe only works with Leopard and/or Snow Leopard? I'm running Lion

Or you could just use Windows and then you'll already have this on your start menu.

Or you could just put your applications folder as a stack

I also tried this and it also killed my dock - it will not appear, even after restart and everything else I can think of. I have tried a bunch of searching and can't get the dock back. I would not recommend this "tweak".

Update: somehow the dock preferences file got corrupted. I didn't have a backup of it so I just trashed the preferences file and set up dock up the way I liked it again. To find the dock preferences file go to home/library/preferences/ the two preferences files are com.apple.dock.db and com.apple.dock.plist
