I am trying to remember if I was dreaming or googling
when I saw a registry key that turned off XP SP2 DEP
(software) protection.

I think that the key was something like
HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\LSA
the value was MemoryProtection   reg_sz  Off

DEP is controlled by BOOT.INI "/noexecute" flag:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875352

The registry parameter you were thinking about was maybe:

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session
Manager\Memory Management
Value: EnforceWriteProtection
