JSI Tip 5499. How do I administer Group Policy objects (GPOs) in a Windows 2000?

Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 322143 contains the following summary:

This article describes how to administer Group Policy objects (GPOs) in a Windows 2000-based environment. You must be a member of the Administrators group on a computer that is running Windows 2000 Advanced Server to perform the tasks that are described in this article. Policy settings are stored in GPOs. You may find it helpful to think of the Group Policy snap-in as a program that creates GPOs, in the same way that a word processor creates .doc or .txt files. There are two kinds of GPOs:

Nonlocal GPOs: These GPOs are stored on a domain controller and are available only in an Active Directory environment. They apply to users and computers in the site, domain, or organizational unit with which the GPO is associated.
Local GPOs: These GPOs are stored on each computer that is running Windows 2000. Only one local GPO exists on a computer, and it has a subset of the settings available in a nonlocal GPO. Local GPO settings can be overwritten by nonlocal settings if the GPOs conflict with each other; otherwise, both GPOs apply.
