I am trying to introduce windows 7 machines into a 2003 domain alongside xp machines and need to clarify some things in regard to group policy.  Will I have to manage all group policy settings, for xp and windows 7, from either a 2008 server or a rstat enabled windows 7 pc; meaning I can't use the old gpmc I use on xp?

Also, is it correct that I am copying .admx files to \\servername\c$\sysvol\domain\policydefinitions?  Where do I get the .admx files from?

thanks for the assistance,
