I have found the Windows 7 GPO files in C:\Windows\PolicyDefinitions.  Does anyone know of a resource that explains what each of these files does, so I know which ones I need and which I can skip?

Thanks

That link that justin provided is a good one and from one of the top guys in the group policy world (Darren GP MVP).  Take a look at this question I helped with

As you can see by that quote try and now manager your group policies through 2008 R2 and/or Windows 7 box.
Thanks
