Windows 7 in SBS2008 environment GPO's

I have an SBS2008 server with mainly XP clients.
I have one windows 7 client, but will be moving over to all windows 7 clients in the next few months.
In group policy management I have group policy objects for XP and vista clients.
But no windows 7 group policy objects for "Windows SBS Client - Windows 7 Policy"
I presume the GPO refinements are more detailed on W7 than Vista.
So how do you get a new template installed for Windows 7 clients?

I have already created a WMI filter, over writing the existing policies is not a problem as the server is a new server.

Hi
Done the above, which worked well.
How do I validate that the GPO is Windows7?
Is there somewhere where I can identify a difference between the GPO controls I can do in XP, Vista and W7 compared?
I remember there used to be excel spread sheets available, but I can find non for W7.

It looks like all the policies for administrative templates are now comming from the central store, which was per the guide taken from a windows machine.
This now means that "Windows SBS Client - Windows XP Policy" is now comming from the central store which is a windows 7 policy template. Is this what should happen?

On the "Windows SBS Client Policy" under "Computer Configuration | Policies| Administrative Templates | Windows Components |" the "terminal services" option is no longer there. It looks like all the administrative templates are comming from this W7 version, but according to the default policy settings there should be an option in the  "Windows SBS Client Policy" GPO.
