I have never test this, but i have read serval time that in XP Home you can only do it in safe mode.
I use a .bat file to do the same thing, open notepad and copy this in
cacls "Folder" /E /G owner:F
where is says folder, type the path to that folder that you what to take ownership of, and where is says owner, type your user name. Then save it as takeownership.bat making sure that you are saving it as all file types. If you save it to the desktop you will be able to find it.

To access the traditional sharing and security tabs and manage permissions manually on these computers, go to Windows Explorer or My Computer, click the Tools menu, click Folder Options, click the View tab, and then clear the "use simple file sharing" check box.
