I would like to distribute files from server to all clients at the same time. Particularly, I need to insert four imaging files to to the Images folders on the clients. The is a way to do this in 1 step using Windows 2003 Server (with SBS and active directory)?

But, the folder name changes from client to client (it will be documents and settings\sam\images  and  documents and settings\rupert\images   etc.)?

it may not be the best solution out there but it's a shot, you may need to look at multiple lines in the file using robocopy, one per user
