How do you set the proxy settings for internet for only a group of computers?  I put only the computers I want into 1 OU.  So I want these computers to have their proxy settings set via active directory group policy.

    Apply a policy to that OU -- you probably want to start with User Configuration -> Windows Settings ->
     Internet Explorer Maintenance -> Connection -> Proxy Settings
    for example...

    also, make sure you have the latest Admin Templates for 2008 as some GPO settings for IE have changed slightly -- it can work without but there are some updated settings...
