Q

Can I have OUs enforce different GPOs for password policies?

I have a Windows 2003 DC and two OUs for users. Can I have one OU that enforces one GPO for password policies and the other OU enforce a different GPO for password policies?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. You can only have one password policy for the entire domain. If you need separate password policies, you must create separate domains. Note that this feature might make it in to the next version of Windows Server (let's cross our fingers.)
