Is there a way to determine what changes have been made to a server?

I have a W2k server with XP Pro PCs on one of my LANs. I want to know if there is a way to determine what policies and/or changes have been made to the server and/or PCs? Such as a tool that will tell me what policies are in effect? And possibly a way to return both the server and PCs back to original factory configurations with out having to reinstall the OSes.

thanks in advance...

Are you asking of a way to see what group policies are in effect?

If so...the GPMC is a great tool. You have to install it on an XP machine as it can't be installed on a 2000 server...but it can be used to see policies on a 2000 domain.
