Setting Default View In OS X

I have a question...Is there a way to set the default view on my OSX server to "List View"? I want every OS X client to see the entire server directory structure in list view as a default. It appears that it is set to "Icon View" by default. It also appears that each client has the ability to change it. And that it changes back to Icon when I unmount and remount the server. So is this setting not passed to the client is it a client specific setting? Is there a hack I can run on every client to default their view of everything to List? Thanks!

The finder creates a file called .DS_Store in every Folder that holds the shape and size of the window, the position of the window on the desktop and whether file, folder or icon view has been selected.

Just open the Folders with your Finder. Change the settings and then write protect the .DS_Store File.
