Windows Server 2008 Group Policy Object

I need a step-by-step procedure for linking a group policy to an individual user on a Windows 2008 domain.  I have tried a number of recommendations, but I have not been successful.

Thank you,

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Do the following...
- create your GPO
- configure the settings you want in the GPO
- Based on what settings you configure computer or user settings you will need to link the GPO to that OU where the user or computer resides
- Once you have linked the OU configure the Security Filtering on the GPO for the specific user and/or computer that this user is using

That is all that is required.

Thank you.

Your response is at a level higher than my experience with GP.  Give me specifics on how to link an user to a GPO. I can see the OU the user is a member of. I can see the OU as well under Active Directory Users and Computers.  But, I can not  see how to link the GPO to the OU and then Filter so that this user is the only account that is affected.
