For importing and exporting rules, you might want to take a look at the
Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). I think it is possible without
GPMC, but it's clunky and difficult.

Download Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) with Service Pack 1

You need to have Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 to run the GPMC on and
for licensing purposes, you need to undertake to license at least one
Windows Server 2003 machine, but you don't need to have your AD running on
Windows Server 2003 machines, nor do your clients need to be running Windows

Hope this helps
