Auto Logoff

Is there a way to make the client machine users of the network automatically logoff after a certain amount of time? There are approximatley 20 nodes with varying operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows 2000 and XP. I am using a primary and backup Windows 2000 Domain controller with Active Directory. Thanks in advance.

after a certain amount of time, or during certain hours
you can set logon hours, and force them off after the hours expire

I really don't want to go with a screensaver program, but I'll keep that in mind. It would make me install it on every machine.

I can set logon hours, but I'm looking for something that I can do in the policy editor for the domain that will log a workstation off after so many minutes of inactivity.
