Windows Screen saver Configuration

I want assign Screen Savers to client workstations, I am able to do this with Active Directory and Group Policies,  but I can not configure the Sceen Saver settings.

for instance,
If I force the clients to use 3dfo.scr,  I want to be able to set object style and the texture that their screen saver will use.

Does anybody know how I can accomplish this?

you can apply small REG file that will change the setting in the registry for all users.
set you own screen saver,export the relevent key. then apply it in login script ( or GPO ) in silent mode.
i will try to find for you whick key you need to apply...

I see similar setting info for other screen savers,  but not 3dfo....
