How to add to Favorites Bar through Group Policy?

I have two (probably simple) group policy settings question. How do I add a Link in the Favorites Bar (not menu) in IE8 using Group Policy?

Also, I need to add 2 sites to the compatability mode list and would rather not go to each station to do this. Can this be done using GP? If not, does anyone know how to accomplish this via a login script? Thanks!

Thanks. This works, but I would have liked for it to be in the favorites BAR, not just favorites menu. Not sure if that is even possible. Thanks!

I have the same probleme, but you didn't  answer correctly!
Your method create the urls in favorites, not  in the favorites bar!
