How to apply a registry key do PCs in an organization unit

I have 8 WinXPs in a OU in a Win2K domain.  All PCs login with the same username (www2).  I've created registry entry to disable the NumLock key.  Here's how I edited the registry:

In HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
I added a key called Scancode Map (REG_BINARY) and added the following value:

00 00 00 00
00 00 00 00
02 00 00 00
00 00 45 00
00 00 00 00

  What's the best way to apply this registry entry to the PCs?

1.  Go to each PC an enter it manually; or,

2.  Apply it via a GPO to the OU; or,

3.  Apply it via a login script.

If the answer is #2 or #3, what are the basic steps to do it that way?

Thanks!

the only way to do it via a GPO is to have a GPO that runs a script at login or startup time.

do you know how to setup a GPO?  if so you just need to have the .reg file run at login or start time

you add startup scripts in \\computer configuration\windows settings\scripts\

you add login scripts in \\user configurtion\windows settings\scripts\

I know how to modify a GPO using the GUI.  I don't know how to create a custom GPO.

i'm not sure what you mean by a custom GPO since ALL GPOs are custom.

all you need to do is browse down to either of the two paths in my above post and point it to whereever your .reg script is.  That is it.
