"folder redirection" is missing in the group policy editior of Windows Server 2003, and I can't go any further until I get this resoved.
I have put up a screenshot of the issue at: http://www.bizlist.ca/missing.htm
There should be a folder called "folder redirection in the "Windows Settings" under "User Configuration"
I have spent literally hours trying to resolve this issue but no luck. It's likely pretty simple but I after going around and
around I am hoping for a guide out of the trees.
I have tried the fixes suggested by Microsoft at: http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsServer/en/library/e88aba03-65b7-4084-a8ef-eb4ca907fe921033.mspx
which suggested the following:

Some policy areas are missing when I open up the Group Policy Object Editor.
Each area of Group Policy functionality is implemented by a Microsoft Management Console snap-in DLL that is registered by default. For example, Administrative Templates and Scripts use gptext.dll, folder redirection uses fde.dll, and Security
Settings uses wsecedit.dll. If these DLLs are un-registered or removed, the underlying Group Policy editing functionality
that they implement will not appear in the Group Policy Object Editor.
To resolve this issue, you need to re-register the appropriate MMC snap-in DLL that implements the missing functionality.
To reregister MMC snap-in DLLs
1. Open a command prompt.
2. Type the following command: regsvr32 snap-inDLLname
By default, you can find all of the MMC snap-in DLLs related to Group Policy in %systemroot%\system32.

Some settings are missing in the Group Policy Object Editor.
Administrative Templates can contain both true policies and preferences, but by default the Group Policy Object Editor
exposes only true policies. To show all possible settings, you need to expose preferences in the Group Policy Object Editor.
To expose preferences in the Group Policy Object Editor
1. Highlight the Administrative Templates node for which you want to see preferences.
2. On the View menu, click Filtering, and then clear the Only show policy settings that can be fully managed check box.

Any help will be apreciated. :-)
