"use http 1.1 through proxy connections" through Group Policy? (500 pts)

Hello,
I need to roll out this setting found in IE6 Advanced settings in the internet options. I tried creating my own Administrative Template shown below:

;-----------------Begin Code---------------
CLASS USER

CATEGORY !!ProxySettings
POLICY "Use HTTP 1.1"
KEYNAME "Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings"
VALUENAME EnableHttp1_1
VALUEON NUMERIC 1
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
END POLICY

POLICY "Use HTTP 1.1 Through Proxy Connections"
KEYNAME "Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings"
VALUENAME ProxyHttp1.1
VALUEON NUMERIC 1
VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
END POLICY
END CATEGORY  

[strings]
Internet="Internet Explorer Advanced Settings"
ProxySettings="HTTP 1.1 Settings"
;----------------End Code------------------

By importing this, it shows up in the Group Policy Editor but does not seem to propagate to the users. Could someone please tell me if there is a way they know how to roll this setting as enabled for all users via group policy?

By the way, the users are on Windows 2000, using IE6

THANKS!

Figured it out myself.
Apparently, you CAN enable this setting through group policy.

Navigate to:

User Config and right click on it. Then enable the "preferenc mode"

there, you will have access to advanced settings in IE!


Cheers!
