How do I set it up so that when a user logs into their machine for the first time all my pre-defined configurations for Internet Explorer (version 8 and 9) are applied?  
This will be a one time initial configuration.

Scenario
Using Server 2000 for active directory/users and computers
Running Virtual Machines in a VMWare environment running Windows 7.

Where I am stuck:
Do I set-up the Internet Explorer settings at the base image computer settings level?
Do I set it up within Group Policy and if so how?
Do I make it a log in script and if so, how?

Since you are using an unsupported Operating System (windows 2000) your options are limited.

group policy adm files http://search.microsoft.com/en-ca/DownloadResults.aspx?q=internet+explorer+group+policy&x=0&y=0

or use the internet explorer administrative kit
