Trying to lock down internet explorer 6 for one user using Group Policy

I am using Windows 2K Server
I need to disable internet explorer for a user.  I have turned off the connections tab and redirected to a proxy server. I am also doing this on the domain ilevel and its still not working.  The only other policy I have is the default policy which only has configured some mapping of drives at log on.  What am I screwing up here because none of my changes are reflected on the persons logon.

From the other posts I understood that Group policy was inserted each time the computer booted up and at a set time interval.  Do you know if there is a reason why group policy would not be downloading to the computer?

Create an OU- move the user you wish to the OU- then create a GPO and link it to the OU

So do I need to have it listed twice:   Once in the domain GP and once for the OU?

I thought you only wanted to apply this to one user?  If you want it to apply to ALL users in your domain....then you set it up at the domain level....if you only want it to apply to one user or a specific group of users then move those USER OBJECTS into an OU and apply the GPO to that OU.
