Following the excellent link on here I have diable USB drive from windows XP machines using GPO. On reading various post
It’s worth mentioning that in Windows Vista Microsoft has implemented a much more sophisticated method of controlling USB disks via GPO. If you have Windows Vista client computers in your organization you can use GPO settings edited from one of the Vista machines to control if users will be able to install and use USB disks, plus the ability to control exactly what device can or cannot be used on their machines
We have 5 Vista machine and 5 Windows 7 Machines, Can i controller GPO from the my vista Machine? We are running Windows Server 2003? Do I need to install some software on my vista machine? I can run local GPO I can see the setting.
