Group Policy Query

I was wondering if there is a way to query Group Policy for a particular OU and filter by only what's enabled?  When I:
1) go through our AD Users/Computers Console
2) right-click on an OU and choose Properties/Group Policy, see that there are Group Policy Object Links
3) choose one and do an edit

 I'm having problems finding what's enabled and where without going through everything.  I'd like to be able to query the Object Link and find out what settings are effected.

Is something like this possible?

Thanks in advance!

If you use the Group Policy management console http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/default.mspx it provides the "settings" window to show what policy options are enabled

The actual GPO Editor screen (i.e., where you actually make changes to GPO settings) will not have the kind of filtering you're describing until Windows Server 2008.  If you're only looking for a report of configured settings, the GPMC functionality that KCTS references should suffice.
