When you run gpedit.msc you won't see it :) it works only for local policies. For that you need to use gpmc.msc (Group Policy Management COnsole) which is available by defau;t on 2008 DC. To use GPMC on local workstation you need to install GPMC for 2003 or RSAT for Win7

Ad2) the most simple way is to use GPP (group policy preferences) to modify registry keys
See similar thread ta Microsoft Technet forum I helped with
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverGP/thread/fbd8db2f-5d52-49ac-9b3f-84a43abddcc5/#dded6dea-9f61-49eb-9b13-17e53ad96014

For XP clients you need to install CSE (Client Side Extension) first

Ad3) I need to check that because I've never done this before.

Regards,
Krzysztof

Computers is actually a container in Active directory and cannot be modified with any policies. You will need to create an OU and populate it then you can apply group policy objects to that OU.
