If you open Group Policy Management, and select the policy you want to include these settings in ("Small Business Server Cleint Computer" for example is applied to all PCs on your domain) or create and link a new GPO (Post back if you want to go this way and i can give some links).
Right-click on the policy and select "Edit"
In the "Group Policy Object Editor", drill down to User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Internet Explorer
In this section is a vast amount of restrictions for Internet Explorer, you should be able to find what you want here.
