Setting the logon screensaver on multiple machines.
I have made a screensaver (.scr) and have used group policy to apply it to the users, that works fine. However, im in a school and many of the computers sit waiting at the logon screen. Then the xp professional screensaver comes up. I know how to change the screensaver through the registry and have tested it and that works fine. But firstly i need to copy the .scr to the C drive of every machine, rather than get them to pull it off a server because can see that going badly wrong at some point. Secondly i need change the registry and remove the xp screensaver and apply my personal one.
So can anyone help me to figure out an automated way to do this? preferably through GPO.

Its held in the registry key
there are a couple of ways to mofify this. Do it via active directory or startup sript to write the key.

I use a simple .REG registry file which is called by a startup script.
