Are there any ready-made Group Policy implementation guidelines?

We are implementing a Win 2K3 setup. I would like to know if there are any ready-made settings for Group Policy implementation, i.e. are there any ready-made policies or document available with suggestions?

Actually, there is. Microsoft has a great document to help you along in your journey. Now, before I go giving the URL, let's be clear: these are some GUIDELINES from Microsoft -- not anything else. So, don't just run out and implement these, test them out first and see if they meet your needs. With that in mind, check out "Implementing Common Desktop Management Scenarios with the Group Policy Management Console" at
