Redirecting My Documents per User not Group

I'm running windows 2003 with about 60 users. I have a specific file sharing structure on the server and I would like to be able to redirect users My Documents from the server instead of going to their computer and moving the My Documents location. I would also like to set the GP so that users can't change their location. In Group Policy I know you can do this by going to redirect folders and My Documents, but it looks like you can only do this on the group level so if you have a group called marketing that have the users ted, mike, and larry and you redirect it to the base folder marketing then you would have

My folder ogranization isn't organized exactly like this and I have some users in multiple groups

My question is how can I do this on the user level instead of the group level?

I think that you have two options, either create multiple OU's and add the specified users within these OU's (and off course connect a GPO to each OU with the specified settings), or make sure to create multiple GPO's and connect them to the user OU (where all users are placed) and grant permissions on these GPO's to specified peolpe only..
