Group policy to change RDP-TCP settings on Windows 2000 Terminal Servers

I see that the WinXP and later system.adm file contains settings that will configure "Always Prompt Client for password upon connection" but these aren't compatible backwards.  Anyone know of a way to make a GPO do this, since the latest update of the RDP client (6.0) is forcing users to give credentials that are then refused by the server... ?

Huh.  I hadn't considered that as an approach - no idea that it did it.  I ended up creating a custom .adm file:

----------------
CLASS MACHINE

CATEGORY !!RDP-TCP

    POLICY !!PASS
      EXPLAIN !!PASS_Explain
      VALUENAME "fPromptForPassword"
      VALUEON NUMERIC 1
      VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
      KEYNAME "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp"
    END POLICY

END CATEGORY

[strings]
RDP-TCP="RDP-TCP Settings"
PASS="Set Password required ON"
PASS_Explain="Set Password required ON.  Created 11/29/06 to work around inability of Win2K TS to accept GPO for this setting"
-----------
