Does the number of desktop shortcuts effect a computers memory (Windows XP)?

So I got into a fight with the IT guy...
I would like to have 5-7 shortcuts added to the desktop of every computer on our network. These will be shortcuts to shared drive locations and internet sites (in IE).
The computers are pretty new, 3 gigs of RAM etc.
He claims that this "could be a problem, if not now, then at somepoint." This seems pretty far-out to me.
Also, they will all be added using a startup script, but its not really about the additional start-up time (which should be minimal).
