Also, keep in mind that there are certain scenarios where you don't need to
deploy XMLLite prior to installing the GPP extensions. See my blog post on
this:

I tried EZ GPO in one of virtaul test domains and I had problems with the
client. I'm now working on standing up a single Vista SP1 RSAT server. 

You still have to deploy the GPP Client Side Extenstions and XMLLite for XP
to understand GPP.

It just seams cleaner doing it this way.
