Apply Active Directory domain group policy to standalone PC

view story

http://serverfault.com – We have an Active Directory 2003 domain with Windows XP workstations. Many settings on the workstations are configured and locked down via Active Directory domain group policy. We need to send a few workstations to a remote office that does not have a domain controller or a connection to the domain. We're planning to remove the workstations from the domain and create local users. How can we apply the Active Directory group policies to the local users on the workstations? Will we be able to manage the policies on the local computers (perhaps via gpedit)? Are there other things we are not anti (HowTos)
