Windows XP Clients not picking up NTCONFIG.pol

Hi, we run 2 domain controllers, Running Windows 2000 advanced server. For years we have had nothing but NT4 clients on the network, and they pickup NTCONFIG.pol from the netlogon share i believe, it disables things like right click and exporer. When the NT4 clients login, it is never a problem, and the policy is always applied. However now we have windows XP clients there is an issue:

Most of the machines we have added to the domain, when they login, no matter who logs in have access to everything, they are not picking up the ntconfig.pol. However some other machines which are exactly the same images DO pick up the policy... but only say 1 or 2 of 15 xp machines. I was wondering if there was somewhere else i should be putting our NTConfig.pol on the server, or where in the XP registry do we put the path of where to pickup the policy?

Im stumped!

you cant use policy editor with windows 2000 server. you will need to use domain controller security policy / domain security policy

You can use the policy editor and i do, i go start>run>poledit and it brings it up, ntconfig.pol is not being downloaded by the xp clients - this is the problem.
