you can't

what you are talking about is setting the policy from an
NT domain controller, using poledit.exe or something
(cant rmmbr exactly), this functionality has nothing to do
with linux.

install the NT admin kit somewhere and use the policy editor
not sure if it will work tho.

Well, actaully you can accomplish this to an extent using Samba as a PDC and mandatory profiles. You're already using Linux in a windows environment so I will assume you have Samba running, to some degree. What you can do is setup mandatory profiles for the users and they will be able to change settings but once they log off and log back on their changes will be no more. Here is a link to the samba howto; hope this was helpful.
