Issue managing Server 2008 GPOs in a Server 2003 domain

I've just added our first Server 2008 box to use Hyper-V and the new terminal services features.  My problem is I am having a hard time getting a new Server 2008 GPO to apply to our terminal server.  I have created a new OU and placed our terminal server in it, then from a Server 2008 box I created a new GP for that OU to harden the Terminal Server.  Even after forcing a GP update on the TS box in the new OU the group policy has not been applying.  Any help would be appreciated.

So you linked a new GPO to that new OU and now gpresult /r at the server shows no sign of that policy? I doubt that.

I have no idea why, but I deleted and recreated the computer account and placed it in the OU again and everything is good.
