Policy implementation on Win2000

I have 2 main servers that are Win2000 with a mixed bag of clients (Win2000 and NT4).  I need to be able to change everyone's proxy setting on Internet Explorer, so I decided to implement a policy to do this. The Win2000 server group policy is great as it has a setting to do this and I implemented it and it works fine for Win2000 CLIENTS.  However, according to Microsoft, I have to use the old Poledit.exe and put it in the NETLOGON folder for the NT4 clients.  I manually created a policy for the proxy setting and put it in the NETLOGON folder, but the NT4 computers still seem to be ignoring it.  Help? I thought maybe I wrote the policy wrong, but I tried another default policy and they are not receiving that either.  I even changed the name of the policy to NTconfig.pol which seems to be the rule.  Any help is appreciated.

-If it's an nt4 workstation policy , create it on an nt4 workstation. If its an NT4 server policy create it on an nt4 server.. Same goes for all OS's...
-Save it to the netlogon share on the DC.

I have now fixed the problem.  A previous setting that I put in through the Internet Explorer Administration Kit (IEAK) was causing an automatic script to run and detect proxy settings which was actually overriding my registry settings I was setting through a policy.
Also, just for info...the help file on Windows 2000 server says it's okay to create policies on the Win2000 server for NT4.0 clients and vice-versa, although they recommend using Group Policy instead of the old system policy for Win2000 clients if you can.
So...for the moderators, this question may now be deleted or kept for future reference.
Thanks for the input, Housenet.
