I need to create some custom registry keys in HKLM on all of our Windows 7 Pro pc's (35). Do I need to create an ADM file for the GPO, or only use Group Policy Preferences ? Any link on how to do this ?

Do GPP work also on Windows XP ?

    Thanks both. I primarly used the first link offered by Demented_Goose, since he was quicker to respond, but checked also the links from sushi84 to confirm my understanding. Works great. I was afraid I would have to create ADM files, but it was finally very simple to implement following the 1st link provided.
