In a Server 2008 R2 environment I'm trying to setup a GPO that applies to specific a OU by Computer not by User.  The GPO's work fine if I set it up by User, but it never works when I try to apply it by Computer.  

It has to be computer based as it's going to be applied to a group of workstations and servers where it will be applied no matter who logs into them.  

There's no option in 2008 to do Drive Maps under the Computer Configuration tree like there is under the user tree. I tried to do just a manually folder mapping, but it gives the user context error.  I'm trying to avoid writing a script for it, but I might not be able to avoid it.
