How do I make KDE/GNU system wide changes for GUI users?

I guess there is a default file that KDE/GNU reads during startup/login or something similar?

Need to carry out the following for normal (non admin) users/groups : -

Point to shared folders onto all users desktop. I.e. Put a link to the share onto the desktop?
 
Remove (Hide) /add start menu items for some groups/useres i.e. Hide system settings (Can do this K Menu for own profile. How do I make a default for all users)?

Lock desktop down or at least reset to default at startup i.e. stop the wall paper changing, stop users changing there own password, etc?

This is an URGENT requirement.

Kind regards

Mark

This link should help:

http://webcvs.kde.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/kdelibs/kdecore/README.kiosk?rev=HEAD

basically you're looking at setting up KDE in a Kiosk mode ... sorry, haven't done this myself so probably can't help much more.
