How to use GPO's for Windows 7 on Server 2003

I am trying to make changes to the Windows environment via GPO's but are not finding the controls for Windows 7. We have a single server all Windows network. The server is Server 2003 and all 55 computers are Windows 7.

I am trying to do things like supress the action center pop-ups from the workstations. Is there some sort of add on to control Windows 7 machines on the server?

Download the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=7d2f6ad7-656b-4313-a005-4e344e43997d&displaylang=en). You will have to install them on a computer running Windows 7 though.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?
