Default GP replication across laptops

Now I've got myself into a pile of trouble.

20 laptops supplied to school with XP Pro, domain logon to NT4 Server, all setup identically. all working fine on wireless>cable network.

The school have w95 and w98 PCs still connected to the network and the policy settings download on logon as per normal.

With XP Pro I can't implement policy settings via a script as on the w95 and w98 systems and I have to do it manually one at a time. I've tried everything to copy templates across and I've got myself into a little bit of a mess.

I've only experimented with 3 out of the 20 laptops. One is OK. The other two I've managed to deny Admin rights to GPEdit, ho ho.

Does anyone have any bright ideas how I can maybe edit registry to reset the Group Policy Settings on the 2 I have messed up?

Also, does anyone know of a simpler way to create Group Policy Settings across 20 laptops?

Thank you very much

Roaming profiles? Dosent when you create the profiles on the server, and then they are logged onto the laptops, policies are created for the logged on user?

NT4 can't deliver profiles to XP Pro workstations
