Use within that GPO node named Restricted Groups. You can read more abot that in the Internet because it's inconvenient placing links on a mobile ;)

If you have at least one Win7/2008 you can use Group Policy Preferences for that, but firstly you need to install Client Side Extension on XP/ 2003 machine. I will post links a little bit later or you can google for that. Thanks

So, in my opinion it's better to use GPP. Instal CSE on each XP/2003 and create GPP on a 7 import to 2003 GPO and link to OU(s).

GPP information aboy that

CSE for XP

CSE for 2003

you can install that update from WSUS

If you don't want to use GPP, then use Restricted Groups

Nope, this link from Mike's blog is for filtering GPO appliance :) He needs to restrict membership of local Administrators group on a server/PC :]
