Not a direct answer -- I don't know details well. But:
You can look to registry at the key
This holds info about whenever (win95) machine should consult
config.pol file and where.  UpdateMode (0|1|2, probably others)
is one of values here (0 means _not_ try to look into config.pol),
and another one is NetworkPath -- the full (unc) path for config.pol
file (I set it to "\\fileserver\netlogon\config.pol").
