Group Policy comparison

I'm looking for a way to compare two group policy objects side by side. I need something that will show me the differences between two policies. I would like to troubleshoot overlapping problems

let me see if the active directory team has me high enough permissions for this. I have the ability to edit my own policies but I'm not able to edit outside of the OU I'm in charge of.
As long as the OU that has Group Policy has permission for you, you should be fine.

Also, hope you are using GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) rather than using the MMC with GP.  You didn't mention the version of Server 2003.
server is 2008r2 and no, I was using an mmc, but I'll switch to the gpmc. I used the mmc for probably the same reason most admins do, I can put all my tools in one console and go with it.
GPMC runs on an MMC to but it's a new system - Only applicable for Windows 2003 to require an upgrade.  If you are using the MMC, the name of the application would be GPMC.

You'd be ok!

I think there's a comparision tool built into it too, at least I remember using one in the past.
