I am currently an IT student at George Mason University and am in the process of creating my senior project.  I am disigning terminal server for my school to allow remote access to applications.  Basically I am new to Group policy which is what I think I want to implement.  I have four different user types.  Students to admins and am unsure how to setup group policy.  I have setup active directory and I have install the group policy management console.  I specifically need a quick step by step on how to setup Group Policy.  I know how to create groups in Active directory users and computers, but I don't know how to assign a policy to the group.  I specifically need to setup startmenu and what icons appear etc.  I am not really worried about local machine policy, just user.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I normally don't like doing the "Link with no info" thing, but Jay Jay 70 posted this in another thread and I found it to be an excellent article, covering extensively what you are asking:

Another excellent paper from the kids at the SANS Institute ;)
I didn't know anything about TS or GPO's either.  I now have a TS running in a higher ed environment thanks to this paper.
