If I understand your question correctly you want to see what is doing/changinf/setting existing GPO - what settings are inside - correct?

If you run Group policy management console and click GPO, then in right pane under Settings you have generated report where you can see what´s set in that GPO

To add if you right click in the report you can save the html file and you can have that to review later.

If you want to know what settings apply to a computer/user you can run an RSoP report using GPMC.

Thanks

Yes GPMC was released in the 2003 era.  This was not an easy task in Windows 2000 without GPMC.
