Adding users to a local computer group en masse

I need to add a domain global group to each computer in my Windows network.  We don't have very well developed logon scripts or policies, but we do have an application distrubution system in place.

Can someone point me to a command or registry hack that I can send each machine that will place my global group in the computer's local group?
