Are you sure?
As for WinNT SP3a and later the solution in described here:
Don't know if it works in Win98SE, etc.

As for Win98SE, there are some apps blocking Alt-Tab, but window manager 
does not recieve it anyway.

I know i can bind another key to window switching, but i need Alt-Tab to 
avoid users' questions.....
