If your Windows 2000 clients exists in a workgroup, or Windows NT 4.0 domain, you can use Local Group Policy to configure client settings. As you don't want to visit all of your client computers, use the following procedure:
1. Logon to a Windows 2000 client with administrative privileges and configure the Local Group Policy, by setting focus to Local Group Policy in the Group Policy snap-in, Gpedit.msc. Make sure you don't have any settings that unique to your 'publishing' computer.
2. Copy the folders/files from the %Systemroot%\System32\GroupPolicy folder on the 'publishing' computer to the %Systemroot%\System32\GroupPolicy folder on the 'target' computers.
NOTE: You can 'filter' any built-in local group.
