gpedit.msc is the Local Group Policy MMC Snapin. It should be located in
c:\windows\system32\ (not sure if it's present on Windows XP Home though)

Otherwise, you can do try:
Start -> Run -> mmc.exe (loads black MMC)
File -> Add/Remove Snapin -> Add button -> Group Policy (focus should be set
to Local Policy by default, but you can change this to Domain Group Policy
if you want, if you're in a domain). You can then save this as whatever.msc
as your own Group Policy MMC Snapin editor
