Are you using AD for group policy, samba (system policy) or local group 
policy. I have noticed, that on my XP client machines not all of the 
policies are present until you add appropriate templates (don't know if 
its SP3 "feature"). If you right-click on Administrative templates, 
there will be an option to Add/Remove templates. The required policy is 
part of system.adm
