Use the setting in the WSUS policy settings
Computer\Windows Components\Windows Update\Target group name for this computer
You can either create a separate GPO for Laptops and Workstations with all the

Create a GPO for XP with all the settings for all sub OUs and then have other
GPO for Loptops OU etc which supply just the different settings such as
You decide which, is it easier to have central setting for everything and
overwrite these with the exception or just have totally separate GPOs and have
to make change in all if something changes.
