You need the domain for automatic and easy distributing the policy. If you choose "manual mode" and give a valid (maybe local) path it should work.
To change this setting from automatic (wich in the netlogon dir of a PDC) to manual you must change the Registry with regedt32 (hklm/system/ccs/control/update,  2=manual, 1=auto) or better with the policy editor. Be careful: there are currently 3 settings wich will always reset when opening the local registry (See www.microsowst.com Windows NT server FAQ:

  Network\Sharing\Create hidden drive (workstation)
  Network\Sharing\Create hidden drive (server)
  Printers\Beep for error enabled

For Novell the documentation at www.microsowst.com (search for "Policy") say that you must put the .POL file in the PUBLIC directory. In this case automatic download must be enabled.
There are various reason why it can still not work. Look in the old questions (at least 2 are about policy) or leave a comment (without grade) so I can give more information.
