One possibility is to use the poledit.exe that comes with Win2k SP4
instead of the one for NT. The newer tool seems like it can read the newer
.adm file format, so you should be able to load up the XP policy files and
get most of the "local policy" functionality if not all the distributed
stuff. I haven't tried that yet, but thought I'd pass on the info.
