I am having issues with the following.

All policy's work except anything to do with My Network Places - network

I want to remove the properties of lan connections etc.... it seems that
none of this works.

None of the User Confi, Adm, Network settings work when applied nor do
the User config, Adm, Desktop, Hide My Netowrk Places, works... what
should I try next?

Does something have to do with the novell client?
