    How do I set Home Page with Group Policy per Computer?

    I tried posting at TechRepublic and they said I should use IEAK. Any other ways would be much appreciated.

    ------------------------

    I run a high school network here and have different computer labs, a library with 30 computers, and a career center with 15 computers. What I'd like to do, is have the computer labs all come up with the home page of the school, the career center come up with the home page of the school, and the library to come up with the library home page for the school.

    When I looked through the Group Policy settings, I see that I can set it using User Configuration and Internet Explorer Maintenance and then using the URL settings to change the Home Page. But I couldn't find anything under Computer Configuration to change it. I need it under computer configuration so it can be location specific. I have all the computers in the library for example, in a Library OU under computers. But when I apply the User Configuration to the Library computers, it only looks for a user object to affect, and therefore, the policy does nothing and isn't applied. I can't make it per user either. Because the User settings don't have a clue where the user is logging in. The library and computer labs won't make a difference to a User script.

    So to sum everything up, I need a solution to set URL's Computer specific instead of users. So no matter who logs in, a teacher or a student, they get the right page depending on where they are. Thanks!
