Windows Group Policy - Can I alter with VBscript?

view story

http://serverfault.com – First of all I'm not an expert in either Windows or Group Policy scripting but one of my tasks is to configure XP machines which are destined to be NOT network. Consequently I've used VBScript to change Registry settings but now I have some settings in the Group Policy which I currently configure by hand but want to script these or automate it in someway. Could anyone tell me if I can make changes to the Group Policy using VBscript or do I need to use something else? I found this page which outlines some possibilities but there's not much detail and I can't yet find follow up articles. (HowTos)
