XP Pro SP2 Firewall - Group Policy problem

I have an SBS2003 server and for some reason the XP machines are all running with the firewall on and the options for On - Exceptions - Off are all greyed out.  I have tried modifying the GP by only putting the "Protect All Network Connections" to disabled, but I'm still unable to get the system to open up.  What am I missing?

I've tried other things with the GP, but nothing has worked and I'm in need of getting this solved yesterday.

Thanks

I've already gone through that article and it didn't add anything I didn't already know.

So your settings within Group Policy are set correctly and the computers aren't taking the policy?

What I found out is that this client had these machines/users in a different OU.  This is why my settings were not taking effect.
