windows standard server 2003 active directory

I have a windows standard server 2003 and active directory. i was digging around in the group policy of my OU but i can't find were you add a policy restricting certain software from being installed. Maybe it's not possible, but I thought it was.

Software Restriction Policies will either allow or prevent specific .exe files from being executed, depending on how it's configured: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324036

If SRP is not an option, the best way to prevent users from installing software is to not configure them as local administrators on their computers, and use managed software deployment tools like SMS/Altiris/SCCM or Group Policy for software deployment.
