GPO's don't apply, not even the Domain Default policy

Hi:

I have a w2k server, a w2k Pro and an XP workstation all on VMWare.

They see each other and share things without any problem, but none to the GPO's are applying.

When I run gpresult on the w2k workstation it says a group policy was applied from the domain controller, but it then says everything came from the Local Group Policy - and none of the settings are affected.  (I've set redirection of My Documents folder and disabled Add New Programs in the Default Policy, and also in a GPO for the Tech group).

Thanks

ipconfig /all yields:

Windows 2000 IP configuration
Primary DNS suffix points to the DC domain (domain.com)
DNS suffix search list points to the DC domain (domain.com) and localdomain

Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection
  Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : localdomain
  DNS Servers ............... points to the VMWare router (default gateway), not the DC.
