Not if you do it the way George suggested.

Mark was suggesting linking the same GPO to multiple OU's.

To clarify:
George's way = Two completely separate GPO's with the same settings
Mark's way = One GPO linked to two separate OU's.

OK, but is it then a soft link to the real GPO? Jim said that if I copy the
policy, it's (in UNIX terms) a soft link. Any changes to the copy will apply
to the original.
