How can I deploy files to certain users with Active Directory?

I am in an Active Directory-enabled network and I am trying to find a way to push out files to certain users or computers either by using Active Directory or by other means within it. Can you please walk me through the process for doing this?
You can use the software distribution mechanism in GPOs to launch scripts that copy files from a central location to the user's workstation. Or you can simply create a network share that only those specific users can access. Please see this step-by-step guide from the Windows 2000 Web site for details.
