Click the scope tab on the group policy object. It will show you the OU linked and the security filtering it is scoped down to. Pay attention to the wmi filter as well.

But that is the machines it is actually affecting. I must be misunderstanding something.

Are you have replication or processing issues?

I don't know of a way to do it with XP. With vista or above, you can create event forwarders that would collect group policy sucessses (or errors) into a central view.
