Once you replace the bootloader with a version that doesn't allow F8 to get into safe mode, use [link] to find out why all your old programs are breaking now you've locked down the file system, spent weeks messing with group policies and hope that noone notices they don't apply if you pull the network plug out just after starting to log in, write scripts to restart monitoring programs when they die, install SUS and make it actually work, write logon scripts, user creation scripts, etc etc, then get active director MSI installers to work (hah), you're half way to a decent Windows 2000 network. Then you just have to reimage all the machines that one day fail to start up and cope with cheap machines = hardware that breaks.
