Found my own answer this morning:


Q: Where can I get the 64-bit version of Group Policy Management Console

A. There's currently no 64-bit version of GPMC, and the existing 32-bit
version won't run on 64-bit platforms. You can run the 32-bit version remotely
to manage Group Policy on 64-bit domain controllers (DCs), but this still
requires 32-bit OSs on which to run the tool. Windows Vista will include both
32-bit and 64-bit versions of GPMC.

So much for a tool to use *now* like... Unless it's available in the Vista RC
already? Anybody know?
