Ok, good to know.  Create new policy do not use default domain.. go it.


Now back to other question.

I kind of figured computer for computer and user for user :).....  I want to disable all the xp firewalls.. I know how and I believe it is just on computer policy that I do that.  Right?

Now when I want to restrict games and give everyone the same desktop or explorer homepage, would I use computer or user?

When disabling the firewall, i always configure this on the default domain policy. So i'm sure it's for the entire domain.

Thanks, I already did the firewall on the defaul domain policy, I thought the same thing.  Now I am creating group policy to map drives for different groups.  Any suggestions there?

Like the finance group automatically maps to the budget folder...
