I'm trying to figure out a way to remotely change the screen saver on all workstations at my site. Workstations are running win95/98, and I need to modify the existing files on the machines to the following:

system.ini:

SCRNSAVE.EXE=C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SCROLL~1.SCR


control.ini:

[Screen Saver.Marquee]
Text=Test Screen Saver
Font=Eras Ultra ITC
Size=50
BackgroundColor=0 0 0
TextColor=0 104 160
Speed=20
Attributes=00010
CharSet=0




Any ideas on accomplishing this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

If all the machines are the same, just run a logon script that will throw it on there. You can also create a reg file and do it that way. Or you could create a global policy where everyone uses the same screensaver. If you want to do them all one by one you can do it remotely http://www.sysinternals.com/files/psexec.zip
