Hello,
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?

thanks,

-Rob
