Default NTFS Permissions in Vista

In XP you used to be able to reset the NTFS permissions on a drive using
using the secedit tool and the templates that MS provided. I can't see
how to do this in Vista as there are no templates under
c:\windows\security\templates any more and the defltbase.inf template in
c:\windows\inf hardly touches any of the filesystem.
If you actually look at the contents of defltbase.inf it does have a
lot entries for filesystem security but most of them are commented out
with a semi-colon. It's the commented out ones for %systemroot% and
%systemdirectory% that I'm interested in though. Why would MS put these
entries in simply to comment them out.? It's not as if you can even edit
the defltbase.inf file to change this either as Vista permissions don't
I'm i missing something here or is this strange setup by design?
I realise I can set these perms with group policy but would setting
filesystem permissions for say C:\, and C:\windows not effect logon
times for user big time?
