I am trying to move the local group policy off a Windows Server 2003 computer to another server.  Neither of these servers are connected to a domain, therefore I am unable to use the GP Management Console.

This is a standard task :)
Open mmc, select add/remove snapin, add security configuration and analysis and open a new database, import basicsv.inf and analyse (not configure!) your server. Afterwards you can export your settings into a security template. That template can be opened the same way on a new server and then you can select configure system now.
