Group Policy editing is painfully slow

I have 5 windows 2000 sbs servers and was wondering why editing group policy on some of these servers is slow slow. 2 of the servers I can edit GP speedily but the other 3 servers takes about 5 minutes to update each setting (and sometimes gives the message "windows cannot update the policies" although it does get updated).

I am editing all kinds of GPs eg. domain, domain controller, OUs etc.  I am also logging in via terminal services.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Are the 2 servers that are speedy Global Catalogs while the other 3 are not?  Here is a link to a description of a Global Catalog server.

Thanks for the reply Da1King,

Each server is part of a seperate LAN and each is both a Domain Controller and Global Catalog server.
