  1. Can i import the ADM files from WinXP SP2 to a Win2000 Domain?
    I have a single Win2000 DC with several Win98 machines, and a few Win2000
    and XP SP2 machines

  2. Yes. Just put them in the inf folder of your management workstation and your
    DCs.

  3. Hi

    Yes, you can.

    If you administer the GPO settings from a non-WinXP SP2 computer, you
    should take a look here:

    (I see that the spreadsheet referenced to in the link above does not
    include e.g. the new entries in the WUAU.adm file)


    If you want to configure the SP2 firewall:

    Take a look at WF_XPSP2.doc "Deploying Windows Firewall Settings for
    Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2", it is downloadable from

  4. I've noted that some strings greater the 255 chars ni the ADM files, is not
    supported on Win2000
    I'm reading now a KB article about that
