creating policies is always welcome,
i dont tried vista adms for now,
cause i dont think most of my customers will switch to it,
the plan is to get totally out of m$.
I am nearly sure that adms will work for vista too, cause i dont read
something that vista isnt any longer compatible to nt 4 pdcs ( but i may
fail here )
Be sure that you dont make work which is allready done
by others, there are few sources of adms on the web.
