OK, once I found the Group Policy editor, I got what I needed (which was to 
enforce a screen saver with a password). Thanks.

Anybody know how to (ir if you can) get XP Pro to go to the welcome screen 
instead of the locked screen when it comes out of the screen saver? 
Unlocking can only be done by whoever was logged in at the time, or an 
admin, and the admin options forcibly logs out the other user. (The correct 
solution, of course, is upgrading to Win7, but that's a time consuming and 
expensive process, and we're not there yet.)
