Group Policies

Hi all:

I have several networks running native win2k and win2003,  I want to "lock" all workstations (both 2k and XP) when users walk away from them for more than 5 minutes; making them use ctrl + alt + del to log back on.  Is there an easy way to do this?  If so, could you tell me how to achieve this please?

Thanks for your time guys.

Um ok then...

Open Active Directory Users and Computer.
Right click your domain and choose properties.
Click Group Policy tab, select your default policy and click Edit.

Make the same changes to the GPO tree as mentioned above.

Start ==> Run ==> gpedit.msc click ok

Expand

+ User Config
  + Admin Tepmlates
    + Control Panel
      + Display

Set "Screen Saver Timeout" options to 5 mins in seconds.

And set "Password Protect the Screensaver"

This will lock the machine.

The previous solution will not work since I want to be able to set this up from the win2k and win2003 servers (Group Policies) on the different networks that I have setup already.  I do not want to go ws to ws to set this up.  I wan to push it trough the network via group policies.  Can this be done?  How would I do it?  Please.
