Does anyone know where I can find a detailed list of settings available in each administrative template provided w/ ieak 6.o sp 1? Specifically, I'm looking for a template that will let me control the Tools, Internet Options Advanced tab via GPO.
Any help would be appreciated!

Hello,
I see 2 questions here...
>>>>Does anyone know where I can find a detailed list of settings available in each administrative template provided w/ ieak 6.o sp 1 <<<<
The only way I can tell you to do this is to import each .adm file into your local machine and look at the new policy

start >> run >> gpedit.msc >> 
expand computer config >> right click 'administrative templates >> add/remove templates >>
the .adms for ieak are found here: c:\program files\ieak6\policies\en
Be careful! there are 2 policies that are already on your system and are probably newer on your system than they are in the ieak6 directory. Those are inetcorp.adm and inetres.adm

As an alternative you can open each .adm with notepad and read what is in them.

Or you might be able to find their contents from MS like:
axaa.adm

Now for the next question...

This is a native feature for Group Policy.
In this link below you will find the steps necessary to import you current settings.
So you will want to setup IE advanced features the way you want them on your machine then
you can import those settings into a GPO. This works best if you are managing Group Policies with your workstation.
If you are not doing this then I would suggest you download the Group Policy Mnagement console

The short version of this article is:
user configuration >> windows settings >> internet explorer maintenance >> click  Security >> open 'security zones and content rating' >> under the content rating section choose 'import the current content ratings settings'

Being a user policy this group policy must reside over an OU that contains the Users you want to restrict
