    Setting a non-default image as desktop background

    Hi,

    What I want to do is create a 'how-to' document which I can save as an image and set as the student and staff backgrounds. I can do the imaging part, but have tried this a few months back and was unable to get it to work. I've been fairly active in this section for the past few weeks and have picked up rather a lot from reading over threads/posts, so now i've just found the .plist file for the desktop which only states the desktop background. If I was to set the background I wanted and then copy the .plist file into WGM, that would roll out to all the groups I previously selected right?! Or would I have to save that image on each client before hand for the .plist to recognise the image? I'm under the impression that if I put the image in the same folder as the default mac backgrounds and set the .plist file to direct to it, I can just shoot that out and it'll work?
