On a Windows 2000 domain, where are the domain policies accessed and changed?  Thanks.

start menu/run/gpedit.exe

that gets the local policy

Otherwise the domain policies are under start menu/administrative tools/Default domain policy

Actually, what I trying to do is figure out where in the domain policies I can find and change the screen saver policy.  Basically, on any computer on the domain, when you go into the display settings and to the screen saver tab, everything is grayed out.  I know this is in our domain policy, but I didn't set this up and I'm not sure where this setting resides.  Thanks.

Well I always get to the domain policy by going in active directory users and computers, then right clicking on the domain, choose properties, click the domain policy tab, usually only the default domain policy exists, click it and click edit.

The screensaver polices are located under user configuration->administrative templates->control panel->display

SOnds like your users are running with insufficient priveleges to change the screensaver settings.  This is typical of 2000, where the ordinary user has less privs. than they did on NT.  Each user should be able to go into screen saver and change it, if not, they dont have enough privs, or there is a login script for each of them that is prohibiting changes.  If the latter, give them the SS rights in the login scripts.
