Well, I'm still not getting enough W2K customers to stay on top of it.  So, hope someone here can help.   I have my first classroom where I installed a W2K server and about 20 W2K Pro workstations.  I managed to configure everything similar to the old NT networks I used to work on years ago.  However, each time a new user logs onto a given workstation, she has to set her internet settings for my proxy server (which is in another room).  Thereafter, it correctly retains these settings for that particular user (unless she moves to another workstation she hasn't sat at before).  But, isn't there some way I can have the workstation know about the proxy server and provide those settings automatically regardless of who logs in?  My problem is that when a new student sits down for the first time, she doesn't know how to configure for the proxy server and the teacher has to do it.  This is aggravating the teacher.  I need the workstation to configure itself for the proxy server for each user whether they be new or not.  Any ideas?
