Hey, just a notice. Might be for Windows XP Pro SP2 Only, but i noticed that the "Disable CD Recording Feature in Windows XP" (in the tweaks section) has or might been modified. Its in one more subdir. Group Policy -> User Configuration -> Windows Components -> Windows Explorer -> and named "Remove CD Burning Features". Nice page!! :) Keep it up!

Thanks!
