hi after been told about 'wmi filtering' i have attempted a practical test as below:

currently i have 3 separate types of 'ou's/gpo ie:

- domain controller - x 1
- member servers - win 2003 - wsus/isa 2006/wds
- host pc - xp type

i have also configured my gpo's via computer configuration using 'admin account for all above machines just to receive updates from 'wsus' & all machines working successfully!!!

wmi filter - added:

ive followed the step by step instructions from 'option 2' and currently running the: gpupdate on all my windows 2003 os.

option 1.  basic explanation: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555253

option 2.  a more clear explanation showing 5 steps:  http://community.spiceworks.com/how_to/show/1432

I understand what i have done but in my mind other than linking via each gpo i have to the 'wmi filters x 3 i had created it has not done anything from a visual/practical point of view!!!

detects - win 2003 machines that are not domain controllers:
- select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like "5.2%" and ProductType="3"
