I'm looking at upgrading all of the machines in my organisation to windows 2000 in the near future. They are currently running a mixture of windows 95 and windows 98 second edition.

I also want to tighten up the security on the machines by implementing policy editor to restrict what the users can do on thier machines.

The question I'm asking is, is there a way of inplementing the restrictions on the machines at the upgrade stage or is this something that has to be done after the installation is complete ??

thanks in advance

Rob.
