I am using Server 2008 and want to place a shortcut in the start menu of the computers.  In group policy under the User Configuration\Preferences\Windows Settings\Shortcuts I created a shortcut.  This will only work on servers that are running Server 2008.  I can't get it to create the icon on any computer running Vista or XP or on a server running server 2003.
