We have a Windows 2000 Server network environment and we are running AD. About 95% of our end-user PC's are Windows 98 SE. How do I set Group Policy so that I can restrict end-users ability to change wallpaper, etc.?
Bad news. Active Directory Group Policy cannot affect Windows 98 clients. Group Policy only affects Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003 machines. You'll need to use old-style SYSTEM POLICY which creates CONFIG.POL files. Remember -- these SYSTEM POLICIES will be permanent entries in your registry until you specifically change and inverse the settings (a distinct disadvantage to Active Directory Group Policy.)
