I'm running Server 2003 and have installed IE8 over my network. I now have users telling me they can't view certian web sites. How or where do I get the GP template to add IE 8 values to GP for active directory on server 2003?

Method 3: Set Compatibility View options for multiple computers in an enterprise environment by using Group Policy settings 
To enable Compatibility View for multiple computers in an enterprise environment, administrators can use the following new Compatibility View Group Policy settings that are available for Internet Explorer 8: 
Turn on Internet Explorer 7 Standards Mode: This setting enables Compatibility View for all Web sites and prevents users from enabling or disabling Compatibility View for any Web sites. 
Turn off Compatibility View: This setting disables Compatibility View for all Web sites and prevents users from enabling or disabling Compatibility View for any Web sites.
Turn on Internet Explorer Standards Mode for Local Intranet: This setting disables Compatibility View (enables Standards Mode) for all intranet Web sites.
Use Policy List of Internet Explorer 7 sites: This setting lets administrators add specific sites that must be viewed in Compatibility View. Users can add or remove sites from the list. However, they cannot remove sites that are specified by the administrator.
Turn off Compatibility View button: This setting prevents users from using the Compatibility View button to try to fix Web sites. This setting does not work in Windows Internet Explorer 8.
These settings are available for both Users and Computers in the following location for each site, domain, and organizational unit:
