I'm looking for something like Netware's ZENworks, but am unsure if teh client operating system would include something like that, althought Windows 2000, being a multiuser OS, should include an utility that can restrict users access to, say the control panel, or forbid groups of users to format a partition, etc.

Anyone know anything about this?

In the control panel there should be Administrative Tools, in there I think you want Local Security policy. It's there on XP and if memory serves me correctly it's there in 2k too.

Yea, there is something like that in the Admin Tools, I think. I'll have to check it out.

Thanks

Not really sure how to use it. I guess I'll need to read up on this a little first.

Sorry for the stupid question in this case.

Start > Run > "mmc" > add/remove snap in > add group policy.

In group policy go to computer configuration, then to administrative templates.

You'll see Control Pannel there, also a butt load of other things you can do from the group policy snap in.

Hope that helped.
