I have several user groups and would like each user group to see a specific desktop when the log in.  The users all log into a terminal server.  They also want specific favorites setup for each group.  I would imagine that group policy is the best way to set this up.  Can anyone please tell me the steps and best way to go about that?

Yes, I understand how scoping GPO's works.  I was wanting the answer in terms of where should I apply it?  Should it be a computer or user gpo?  Should it be applied to the security group? What are best practices for applying profile (desktop apps and favorites) information based on group membership?
