Public Folders

I would like to know how I can make the public contact folders available to all Outlook users when they create a new mail message . Would I have to go to each individual computer  and select "Show this folder as an e-mail address book? Or, is there a way to do it all at once so each e-mail user will see the address books when they compose an email?

Thank you.

Thank you... however, I may not have explained my situation correctly. I see numerous public folders displayed in outlook, as does everyone else. However, there are public contacts associated underneath the folders that we would like to send messages to. When we compose a message, the GAL is displayed. However, when we click on public folder, nothing is populated. How would we be able to see the contacts located on the exchange server and send messages to either the entire group or individuals in the contacts area, under public folders?

The bit about setting the "Use as an address book" automatically is the one drawback of the public folder as a contact list and is one I haven't found a way round yet.
