When you run gpedit the computer and user sections do have Administrative templates folders but there aree only a few items in each.  My other servers have all the other folders.  When I try to add templates I don't get the system folder option.
This is a brand new install of 2003 server and does not have anything but MS stuff. Been pulling my hair out.

can you export and import the templates from one of the other servers to that one?
