Graham,

I'm pretty certain that feature is only for Windows 2003 SP1.

A workaround would be to try setting the registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\Cache
Value:  Persistent  DWORD

Default is 1 (Keeps cache), change to 0 will delete cache when browser
closed.  I don't have a W2k box here to try it out, unfortunately.

Obviously, the major downside of this is that using a script or custom ADM
template to set will tattoo the registry with this value.


Mark
