Windows 2000 Auto install fonts

I have 20~30 fonts that do come standard with Windows that I want all of users to have. I have tried running a startup script that copies these to the C:\WINNT\FONTS folder, but this doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to automate the install of these fonts?

Is there a way I can (ha ha I mean you can) modify this script file to install ALL fonts within a folder?

Sorry about stingy 50 points, I thought this would be easy.

Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

sFontName = "Sample.TTF"
sFontDescription = "Sample Font (TrueType)"

FSO.Copyfile "O:\Fonts\" + sFontName, "c:\winnt\fonts\" + sFontName
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts\" + sFontDescription, sFontName

Sorry.  I'm just learning how to do vs and don't want to screw anything up for you.  Maybe post a link to this question in the vbscripting area.
