I have a Windows SBS 2003 server in a domain that consists of a mix of Windows 7 and Windows XP boxes. I need to create a global policy that enables a screen lock (requires user password to unlock) on all clients within the domain. I haven't done much of anything with group policy editing to date so any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind that I don't have much specific experience in this area so don't make any assumptions as to what I already know!

I have read many group policy related articles like this one:  and one common instruction I see is this:  
Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Terminal Services, Sessions
I'm not sure how to get to this path, so that might be somewhere to start.

Thanks in advance for the help, your patience is appreciated.
