A final note on Group Policy: Group Policy is designed to provide consistency and security on the network. You should definitely create a number of GPOs and develop a clear understanding of how individual policies and administrative templates affect the user and computer configurations.

Group Policy is not something that should be used without a very clear understanding of how it really works.
