    Some of those features look great.
    The registry ones look handy, and it looks like the settings are finally laid out logically! .
    Wouldnt mind moving to 2008 when the network here gets rebuilt, but our LEA wont support us if we do. .

    Im a bit confused...

    I've setup Windows Server 2008 and figured "umm.. theres alot more policies in 2k8 then there are in xp.. how will I know what im configuring actually applies to Xp clients?"

    By installing this download to all my XP machines.. will that then allow me to just use pretty much any setting I like knowing it will work?

    Or does this just make XP compatible allowing it to use the new GP extensions for GP.. as its not adm or something is it.

    Anyway, i've just downloaded the XP client and went to distribute it via Software install in GP... only you can only deploy msi's and the updates an exe.

    How are you guys going to distribute it?

    I'll be using WSUS to distribute the client.

    As with 2003 server all policies should have a description giving you the minimum OS requirements.

    thanks cookie_monster...

    So basically this client will allow the perferred policies to be applied like mapped drives, reg settings etc.

    It won't allow any more policies then Windows Server 2003 already uses from a 2008 server. The new policies will only be applied to vista clients?
