yeah i have a reg file that is merged with a start up script pointing to thenew wallpaper on the local drive or you could use a server share
Set oShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
sRegFile = "C:\desktops\logon.reg"
oShell.Run "regedit.exe /s " & Chr(34) & sRegFile & Chr(34), 0, True
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

done it slightly different way.
Batch File on Startup running:
copy \\wwndc01\wallpaper$\Wallpaper.bmp C:\wallpaper.bmp
regedit.exe /s \\wwndc01\wallpaper$\Wallpaper.reg

Why copy to the workstations ?

Reg setting done by group policy rather than startup script (pointing to \\dfsdomain\etc\wallpaper.jpg), makes it more easily managed.
