A new SCOM 2007 targeting poster has been posted to help everyone understand targeting.

To sum it up

Target all new monitors at Windows Server or one of the targets that Microsoft has created such as IIS or SQL Servers.

Set the rule to be disabled by default.

Create an override that will enable the rule only for the computers or group of computers you want the monitor to run on.

Here are a couple of KB articles that describe this.
