How do I set a default background bmp for non-administrators?

I'm not normally an IT administrator,so pls bear with me, hopefully this is simple.
Got a bunch of training PCs running Windows NT4 (time to upgrade I know!).

I've got these all set up as I would like, apart from one aspect.  When one of my training users logs on to the PC, how do I set it,so that they see my coporate bitmap as the background on the PC?

If I log on as administrator, I can set the backgound wallpaper to pick up my .bmp file, but it doesn't save that for when the user logs on.
If I log on as a non-admin, & right click the desktop, the only 3 tabs I see are appearance, plus! & settings.  Is it something I need to change in the logon script?
The appearance tab lets me change the background colour, but doesn't allow me to pick up my bitmap.

you can enforce a wallpaper using System Policies....

You'll need to use the policy editor (poledit.exe), create a .pol file with the wallpaper setting in it, and then put the .pol file in the netlogon share in the domain controllers.

Give the particular user admin rights, log off, log back on, change the wallpaper and  remove the admin rights from the user, log off again, and again log back on.

Thanks for the tip, but I've got 30 of these users.  Is there not a way I can do this without fiddling around with the admin rights?

Probably you'll have to change something in the policies, because normally you should be able to change the background as a simple user.

As JammyPak says use the group policies.  Just create a group on NT with the 30 users and use this group in the group policies to set the background.
