SBS 2003, Active Directory Tools

Hi I saw a tool called policymaker to configure gpo are there any other free tools like this?

And, I added a computer to my domain and when I did so, all of the local applications no longer appear in the start menu, the start menu has basically nothing just the basic Start-up folder and Accessories with IE and a few other things...where did all the other programs that were install on the local computer go? I know they are still there because outlook appears in the common programs list, but they were removed from start menu.

Greetings Brian,
You will find all other profiles on following path:

C:\Documents and Settings

Double click on My Computer -> C: drive -> Documents and Settings

Hope this helps!
Regarding tools like Policymaker.. I mostly use ADModify.Net. Its an excellent tool (GUI) for bulk operations.

Have a look at following:

Thanks James, that'll do it!
Is there anyway to configure the profile on a domain level?
it depends on what you mean by the domain level :) you can use numerous toys with domain profiles, roaming profiles or mandatory GROUP or USER profiles which are all stored on the server, a good place to start and look at is
