Copy Group Policy ADM files from 1 GPO to another?

Hi all
We have many Group Policy Objects (GPOs) within our Active Directory infrastructure. For testing purposes, we copy existing GPOs, link them to different O.U.s and change the Admin Templates (ADM files).
We have a GPO that includes the inetres.adm for IE8, we have fully configured it to our needs (disabled InPrivate Browsing etc...). However, when we copy the GPO and remove all other ADM files except inetres.adm, we still see all of the the settings from the previously attached ADM files. Also, if we create a new GPO from scratch, remove all default ADM files and then add our customised inetres.adm file, there are no settings defined at all!
We have tried this on an XP SP2 machine with IE, an XP SP3 machine with IE8 and a Windows 2003 server with IE7.
Have searched online but nothing coming up.  Hoping someone can put me in the right direction.
How can we copy our customised ADM files from one GPO to another please?
Thanks
Scott
