I post a message few days ago, my problem is similar with u : 

but i still don't have to correct answer too. Some one send me poledit.exe 
from the nt 4 server cd but i don't want to use it: i don't have this license 

According to me, there is 3 ways to create gop :
	- the first: by using the poledit.exe from the nt4 server cd
	- or by downdloading freely the adminpak.msi from the microsoft site if u 
have a license of Windows XP pro (+sp1)
	- or by using the active directory 's MMC from any windows 2000/XP server

My problème is that i don't have any XP, 2000 server, NT4 server. So i can't 
create some GPO.
I don't find a way to create a GPO, using a windows 2000 pro
