Getting additional GPOs without XP workstation

In your article "You'll want to do this Win2k upgrade," you give a way to get XPs additional GPOs. Is there another way that wouldn't require the use of an XP workstation? I don't have any XP PCs yet, but I do want the additional security settings that XP offers.
There isn't, unfortunately. One way to get around this is simply to bring a laptop into the domain that has Windows XP installed and "steal" the GPOs from it. A laptop is generally easier to work with, since it can be brought in and out and detached without too much hassle.
