Hi all,

Having never written an ADM before (note: Win 2003/XP env), I was wondering
about feasibility of writing custom ADM to apply a screen saver to computer
side of a GPO so that we can target computer objects.

- We don't want to turn on loopback for standard end user machines
- We can't use the user side of the policy because client only wants it
applied to certain machines (but large groups of them)  :- (

I'm guessing the tough part (maybe impossible?) is specifying the end user's
registry key.  I imagine there's no such thing as the "Control
Panel\Desktop" subkey for computers right?  Anybody else been down this
road?  I'm already primed to tell customer to adjust their expectations  :-)
