Thank you.

It all depends how much you will tighten the users.

Since you have Windows Server 2008, the Group Policy Preferences overview is a good start.

Hiiii..
For setting IE policies for users, please download following from Microsoft:

Also, as you are new to Group policies, i would like to give you a tool for Group policy best practice analyser which will really help you a  lot in long run:

One place I'd look at is the IE 7 Security guide
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6AA4C1DA-6021-468E-A8CF-AF4AFE4C84B2&displaylang=en
Internet Explorer 7 Desktop Security Guide
Starting on page 8 are some recommendations that you can look at and decide if you want to implement.
Definitely test anything first, users that have issues with IE are usually not happy users.
Thanks
Mike
