Setting up identical desktops across the network with a single sign on.

I have a network of about 20 people who work on GPO locked down workstations in a call center environment.  The manager of this company wants everyone to have identical desktop settings on every machine across the board,  Icons on the desktop, favorites in IE, etc.  The catch is everyone signs on with one user account.  So all twenty workers sign on using the "worker" account.  Does this make using roaming profiles not possible?  I would like assistance in getting this request fulfilled without having to visit all 20 machines and making the changes manually.  What steps can I take to automate setting up every desktop for one account with identical settings.

Thanks

I apologize for the delay on the response for this.  

If I setup the desktop how I want it under "worker" account on one machine, should this apply to every machine that logs in under that account?

Also, what happens if several people are logged in on different machines using the same account while I am setting up this model desktop?  Will they see the changes next time they log in?


Thanks and I will be more attentive to this question now.
