Hello Experts:
I need to enable Simple File Sharing for every computer on my domain (about 200).  I'd like to use a GPO to do this.  I have done some brief reading and evidently there are claims that Simple File Sharing is not an option when a computer is joined to a domain.  However on my own computer which is on the domain I am able to Enable and use Simple File Sharing.  I need to make this work for every computer for rolling out a software package that evidently fails unless Simple File Sharing is enabled.
Windows 2003 domain
Windows XP SP2/3 workstations
Thanks much
