Trying to add some GPO links to the Favourites bar in IE8 on Win7 SP1 using GPO.

I have successfully added them to the users own redirected favourites area, but trying to add them to the favourites bar, is like trying to get blood out of a stone!
From what I have read, adding them to the "Links" Category should work....but of course, it doesnt!

Any ideas people! I did try using preferences to add a URL shortcut to H:\Favorites\Favorites Bar\.... but it just creates a duplicate Favorites Bar folder GRRR!
