In Active Directory there's a group policy to only aloow local profile.  This is an ideal policy to apply to workstation that I don't want a user roaming profile form copying down.  Here's the problem I have is this will work for Windows XP and Windows 2003. Unfortuantely the workstations I need this to apply to are WIndows 2000.  Is there anything that would produce a similar effect on WIndows 2000 even something as simple as a registry tweak that I could tunr into a custom adm since there doesn't seem to be one that exists in GPO for Windows 2000.

I think this is what you're after.
Looks like MS released a hotfix to allow this option for 2000 : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817361

If I reading the corretly the issue was addressed in SP4 for WIindows 2000.  If this is the case why does the GPO still only list as WIndows XP and WIndows 2003 as the compatible versions?

Where are you reading this? In the MS article? I think it's just saying that the policy was first introduced for XP/2003, but the hotfix now allows you to apply the policy to 2000 machines.

Yeah, this is the standard text explanation. I assume it has been written before the hotfix came out. It is correct, by default, it will only apply to XP/2003, but that's what the hotfix is for.
Apply the hotfix to the 2000 machine and give it whirl.
