Group policy in XP workstation missing User Admin Template folders

I have two new XP desktop machines that are in a workgroup. When I try to use group policy to define policies such as default screen saver, screen saver timeout, etc., I don't see the items in the Administrative Templates section that I'm accustomed to seeing. I confess that I haven't set up systems in workgroups for a while, but it doesn't make sense that these get pushed by the DC.

Specifically, the only folder under User/ Admin Templates is "Windows Components".

Suggestions? Thanks in advance

Thanks. Never had to do this before except when building my own console. DOH! Unusual that the default config from Dell omitted this group.
