You do it via your domain group policy..

Open active directory users and computers, Right click on your domain, click on the group policy tab. Click on the domain policy and click edit. After, click on User Settings -> Windows Settings -> Internet Explorer Maintenance ->
Connection -> Proxy Settings

Proxy servers can also be set by DHCP. It is Option 252.

you could put merge this registry key via your login script on each PC, and the proxy setting would set itself at each reboot.

regedit -s  name.reg

this will merge the registry file and replace the old value with the new...  it will not ask for confirmation if you add the -s switch..
