Group Policy Objet - Appropriate Rights

Hi, hope everyone is well!

Small Business 2003 Server. Out of the box installation.

Some of my Window 98 clients are having issues logging on so i found some info regarding changing SMB on the server. At which point i go into Domain Controller Secuirty Policy on the server and I get:

"Failed to open the Group Policy Object. You may not have appropriate rights." Details: The system cannot find the file specified.

I am logged on as Administrator.

Any help will be appreciated.

It doesn't saying nothing before the username: Domain is in the domain box...
I'm assuming that you tried the fixes above and they did not work.
Have you finished the SBS installation?  I think there is a process to DCPROMO the server after the initial installation.

There should be another step to do.

Trying the fixes above at the moment.

Followed the steps mention in articles listed by cfairly. Worked to open the GPO but now got new errors: new question: new points.
