XP Place Volume icon in taskbar for mulitple users on a single machine

Currently each student that sits down at an XP machine needs to check the volume box in the control panel to have the volume icon show up in the taskbar. Is their a way to have it configured so it shows up for all users.

I believe you must set this up prior to having your users log into the system, in the default User Profile.  In other words, you set the system up the way you want the profiles to look, copy the profiles to the default user profile directory, then have the users log in for the first time.  I know of know way to push this policy out after the user has logged in.  

If you are using Roaming Profiles, I would think that this setting would be saved for the student the next time they log in.  If Mandatory Profiles, you will need to change the profile itself manually.

I was hoping for a way of pushing out the policy.

I am sure there is a registry edit for this, but I would have to dig pretty deep for it.  And of course, if we find it, you can push that out using a GPO...
