Q

Help creating group policies with multiple Windows systems

I have a mixture of Windows XP professional, Windows 2000 professional Windows 98 and 95 systems running in my Windows 2000 domain with Active Directory. How do I make group policy work for all the versions of operating systems?
You're going to need to upgrade the Windows 95 and 98 systems in order to make them work with Group Policy, as GPOs are not supported on those operating systems. Group Policy only works on Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, or Windows Server 2003. Microsoft has a document, "Deployment considerations for Group Policy," that talks about the things you need to take into account when creating Group Policies in heterogeneous environments (like the one you're describing).
