Workstation: Windows XP X64

Everytime I make this registry change on this workstation it the value goes back to 0.
So I thought maybe, since this machine is on a Domain, I would create a group policy, but how do you do that exactly?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Key: AllocateFloppies
Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1
