We have setup a Win2003 Active Directory server. A bunch of the client computers are Win XP. I want to set the desktop to classic view and I also need to have a default proxy server in Internet Explorer. I have found the group policy in Active Directory users and computers (Right click on the domain go to group policy, click edit) but even though I make the changes when I log into one of the client machines my settings aren't there. Any help would be appreciated.

You have to make sure the security settings are setup to Apply to either the computers or users that need the policy.  When you right-click on your domain, and choose properties, and go to Group Policy, highlight the policy you created and click on the Properties button.  Check the security tab.

Make sure Authenticated Users has read access.  Also make sure it is linked to the domain.

Run a gpupdate on the XP client machine and see if it received the GP updates.

Did you make sure that you applied to that domain users group for the added GPO?
