Stop new windows appearing on top in XP?

How do you prevent a new window/application from opening 'on top'? I normally open links in a new window (SHIFT-click), but the new links open on top so it takes ages to open several links from the same page. Do I use the registry?

I have been using a free program called IEbooster that round about solves the problem.
It adds a selection to the right click menu to: "open link in new minimized window"
Unfortunately there is no hotkey setup for it, but there may be in future versions of the software.
It also has alot of other neat little options that you might find useful.
