Can someone tell me how to import a GPO? I tried following these instructions:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779123(v=ws.10).aspx

But I dont see an option for the "import settings wizard"

I am on a Windows 2008 server.

What do you mean you don't see the "Import Settings Wizard"? How far do you get? Can you screenshot what you have?

To import settings from a Group Policy object
-In the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) console tree, expand the Group Policy Objects node in the forest and domain containing the Group Policy object (GPO) to import settings.
-Right-click the GPO and click Import Settings .
-Follow the instructions in the Import Settings Wizard .

These are the instructions but when I right click the GPO there is no import settings.

You need to go to Group policy object container and in GPO template you will get import setting.

Thanks Sand,
  I need to import some IE settings. Would you use it as a user policy or computer policy?
