I've gotten down the process of creating IE favorites through group policy, but I would like to dictate organizing of those madated sites.  In the Group Policy object Editor, where you can add the sites, there's also an option to add a folder.  But I can't get this to work at all.  I add the folder there, and run a gpupdate and the folder doesn't appear in my IE favorites.  Then when i go back into the GPOE, the folder isn't in the list.  Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure you'll need to script the creation of that folder on the client before you can populate it with a GPO.

You should manually create the empty folder on one client, then add it in the policy with one link inside it.  If this test client has the new link in the empty folder you created then that's the problem.
