If you use net send then then do this

net send * TheMessage

This will go to every macine that is connected to this machine without having to specify the computername

CO, My link says the same thing

Sends messages to other users, computers, or messaging names on the network. The Messenger service must be running to receive messages.

net send {name | * | /domain[:name] | /users} message

Parameters

name

Specifies the user name, computer name, or messaging name to send the message to. If the name is a computer name that contains blank characters, enclose the alias in quotation marks (" "). Long user names may lead to problems when used as NetBIOS names. NetBIOS names are limited to 16 characters, and Windows 2000 reserves the 16th character.

*

Sends the message to all the names in your domain or workgroup

What are you trying to achieve with doing this?  Net Send will do it but most users will press enter before reading what you are saying in the message.

If a reboot is required (obviously depends on your situation) then maybe psshutdown with a message would do the trick as the message is non removable until the PC is rebooted.  You can download psshutdown from pstools link on www.sysinternals.com
