Autologon via GPO


We are running Windows 2003 AD on 2003 Domain Controllers.

I would like to implement a GPO that enables Autlogon for machines in a certain OU. The user account is: domain\User1.

I would have thought this would be straightforward via GPO, but it seems it's not looking at Internet.

Does anyone have any recommended methods?
