    If you are runing a domain you can push settings at user logon time using AD & group policies. See Understanding Group Policy in Windows 2000, Configure Specific Windows 2000 Server Features, Managing Day-to-Day Operations - Windows 2000 Server, and Designing Organization-wide Policies for more information.
