BgInfo on client computers

I have several Hundred workstations to manage and I want all of them to use BgInfo to display specific information on the desktop background.  I have configured the BgInfo.bgi file the way I wish it to appear but the problem I am running into is that if a PC on my network has never run a *.bgi file then it doesn't know what program to use to open it with.

I have a Win2k3 domain with AD.
I figure I can put the program in Netlogon and call it from a script, but how do I ensure that the client systems know to use BgInfo.exe to open bgi files without having to touch each one and point it to the correct app?

If you call
BGinfo config.bfi
from the script where is the problem ? You specify BGinfo followed by the config file

I have downloaded Bginfo from the Sysinternals site and it doesn't include a config.bfi file, I don't understand how to create one or what the syntax for such a file should be.

Should the syntax then be
Start Bginfo.exe bginfo.bgi /timer:0

Syntax is:

Start \\servername\netlogon\bginfo\Bginfo.exe \\srvername\netlogon\bginfo\BGInfo.bgi /timer:0 /NOLICPROMPT
