Implement Group Policies on a mixed domain

I am trying to do Group Policies on a mixed domain (WK2000 and WK2003 servers) with Windows Server 2000 and Windows XP Pro machines. How can I do this? I am having problems with the existing policies.
One method that I would consider is to use OU specific group policy objects and group your computers in the appropriate OUs. One of the most important aspects of Active Directory design that I think has been frequently overlooked is to ensure that you design your AD structure to accommodate what you want to do with group policy.
