IE 8 GPO Preferences on Server 2008 DC

I have a Server 2008 Domain.  I am trying to modify some IE 8 settings via GPO using the Preference Extension but it only gives me options to modify IE 7.  How can I get the option to modify IE 8 via the Preferences extension?

IE8 was not shipped with Server 2008 so Server 2008 does not know about it.
To use the most up to date Group Policy Preferences you'll need to administer Group Policy from a Windows 7 machine.

Install the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7 in a Windows 7 machine.

Then make your changes to Group Policy from that Windows 7 machine. All of the most recent Group Policies and Preferences will be available.
