You can use the NT 4.0 System Policy Editor with the Windows 200x policies
to implement GPO's.  I know this can be done with XP and Windows 2000.  Not
sure about Vista.

The main difference is that System Policy Editor writes the policies to the
relevant sections of the registry on the workstation.  Windows 200x server's
GPO's do not.

Have a look at these articles
