how to set up a group policy attached to a group or single user

I am trying to figure out how I can attach a group policy to either a user or a group of users within a OU. Specifically, I am setting up remote access using terminal server. I want to create the group policy in the same container as where the users are currently located. domainname.ca.local/local users
Normally, I would create another OU right under local users and call it ts users...
domainname.ca.local/local users/ts users
...but I believe there is a way to do it so that I can use the same OU where the users are located and just add them to a group to take on the group policy. I am running Windows 2003 Standard
Thanks in advance for the help

You're thinking of security group filtering, wherein you modify the Permissions of a GPO. By default, every GPO has a security entry for "Authenticated Users" of "Allow - Read, Apply Group Policy".  You can either:

[1] Remove the entry for Authenticated users and create an "Allow - Read, Apply Group Policy" entry for only those users who should receive the policy, or

[2] Leave the Authenticated Users entry in place and create a "DENY - Read, Apply Group Policy" entry to exclude a specific subset of users who should NOT receive the policy.

Here's a good tutorial from Mitch Tulloch on how to set this up in the GP Management Console: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Group-Policy-Security-Filtering.html

Hope this helps.
