Win 2003 server GP not pushing down to Win 2000 W/S

Hi,
I have a win 2003 Active Directory domain, win2000 W/S.
I can't seem to get the GP to push down to the W/S.
The policy that I need is the logon warning maessage.
It is set in the domain gp but doesn't move to the W/S.
What do I need to look at?
Thanks
Al

ok
I have fould one of the problems.
When typeing out the message I put a return at the end of the box.
this coulded the policy to end the message at the return.

now one of the other computers has a currupt GP.
How do I fix or repair the GP snap in?

Thanks

when I say currupt I mean:
when I open gpedit.msc and click on security options I get the following error.
Snap-in failed to initialize

I looked this up on the net.
it said to make sure that the %systemroot%\system32\wbem was in the path. it is.

Also I get an event id 1202, security policies are propagated with warnings. 0X4B8
I think these are related, because the changes that I make on the domain gp do not propagate to this system but thay do on a different one.

What should I look at?
I am to the point of format c:\ and rebiuld it.
Thanks
