Group Policies

Couple of question re. GPO's on server 2008:

1. I have set up a GPO which rolls out 2 printers as a user preferences role. I have triple checked this GPO, scope, user OU's, the file share paths, printer drivers, registryy etc and the ONLY way it applies when a user logs on is if the Delegate tab in the GPO editor as "Domain Computers" in it
Can someone explain why please

2. Same server - What can stop Redirected Folders from being applied to Domain Users

Best I can assume is that under delegate tab, there is no "Authenticated users" group with read permissions.
All authenticated users need to be able to read a policy.

o you click advanced, add authenticated users, check that only read is selected, and deselect apply group policy

Both shown in this example screenshot.

Delegate
As long as the user group to assign the GPO to users has read & apply group policy applied, in combination with the existence of the authenticate users tab, all should be fine. Some more info is available on this MS blog

If this is not your scenario, perhaps add some screenshots to clarify the issue please, as many things can stop a GPO from applying. You could try running the gpo results wizard for some added info.
