I log onto the computer as Administrator for the local computer.  When I go to Administrative Tools/Local Policies/Security Options (right click onto properties) I can't define any of the policy settings; they're grayed out.  If the policy isn't defined under the default domain policy why can't I change it?

Verify that you are logging in as an administrator? Verify that the user is in the local administrator's group...

XP Home doesn't have Administrative Tools\Local Security Policy so I know you're on XP Pro...

The policy could be defined under the domain in an Organizational Unit (see if your computer is in an OU or the default Computers container, note that OU's can be nested)

The policy could be defined under the site (AD Sites and Services, Sites, Default-First-Site-Name or any other sites you've made)
