The only minor clarification I'll make here is that the "Always use Local
ADMs" policy is only respected by Win2003. That means, if you're editing
GPOs from XP, that policy is ignored. Don't ask me why--they never
back-ported it XP.

Mary,

There is a setting to turn off the automatic update of ADM templates in User
Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Group Policy.
And, the settings are not stored in the ADM template, rather, the template
defines what settings are available.  The settings are stored in the policy.
So, updating the template does not change the settings (in some cases, it
changes the name of the setting, and in others adds new settings).  There is
also a setting to Always use local ADM files for the Group Policy snap-in in
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Group Policy
that if not configured or disabled, always uses the ADM from the GPO itself
(the template it was created with, and or updated (if the former setting was
not enabled [earlier default behavior]).

Thanks Darren. 
I know that there are only a few settings added with sp1 but the entire ADM
template would overwrite the one I have if I ran GPMC from the server.  The
one I'm concerned about is the inetres.adm.  Eventually I will need to
incorporate the changes into my production ADM(XPsp2).  Am I wrong in
thinking that I will have to reset every setting in the new ADM? Or has
Microsoft provided a way to import the current settings into the newer ADM? 
Thanks for your help.
Mary

Hello,
I have just been informed that our DCs are scheduled to be upgraded to
Windows 2003 service pack 1.  I run the GPMC on a Windows XPsp2 PC.  As long
as I only use an XPsp2 machine to run the GPMC I should not have any
problems, correct? It is only if I run the GPMC from the DC that my ADM
templates would get updated.  I just want to be sure that I don't have to
worry about my current settings getting overwritten.  Thanks for your help.
Mary Collingwood

Mary-
That is correct. In any case, if some GPOs do get upgraded, the difference
between the 2003, SP1 and XP,SP 2 ADMs are negligible anyway (see
www.gpoguy.com/admdiffs.htm for details).
