Windows Terminal Services

I have two Terminal Services Servers. Neither are running Citrux, just good ole Terminal Services. One of the Servers is 2003 and the other is Server 2000.

On the 2003 Server, I have it set so that I can remote control a client session without the users permission. This is set in:
Administrative Tools -> Terminal Service Settings -> Local Computer Policy -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Terminal Services -> Set Rules for remote control of Terminal Services user sessons. I have this setting Enabled of course and the option is Full Control without Users Permission.

On the 2000 Server, I simply don't have the Terminal Services part of the path. I get:
Administrative Tools -> Terminal Service Settings -> Local Computer Policy -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components. And the Terminal Services part is not available.

Is this setting stored somewhere else in 2000 Server? Or do I need to add the Terminal Services folder to the console somehow?

Please help. Thanks!

Under Active Directory Users and Computers, chose the user account, go into the properties of the user.  Chose the Remote control tab, and this is where you set the options.

Shouldn't I be able to set it for all users? I can on 2003.

Sorry, hit Submit too soon.  You can go into Terminal Services Configuration and change the settings for RDP-tcp, there's a tab for Remote Control which you can set how you want Shadowing handled.
