I suspect you are correct about only needing ADPrep Omar, since the only 
server-side GP pieces of WMI Filters are one or two new AD classes and some 
attribs. And you are correct that only XP/2003 and above will process filters. 
Additionally, even if you update the 2000 schema, you can only define and link 
them using XP/2003/Vista.

Looks like you only need to run the Windows 2003 Adprep on a w2k domain
and you don't even need w2k3 domain controllers.

I do think that wmi filters will only be processed on XP and w2k3
systems on the network- but you may have to clarity from the GPO guy
himself on that one.

Hopefully this one is a quick 'yes or no'

is it right that WMI filters are only available if the domain is such
that at least
one DC is at Windows 2003, and as such not available to a Windows 2000
only domain ?
