Win XP workstations

Is it possible to create shortcuts that will appear on a user's desktop each time they logon to a workstation?  I want to create a desktop shortcut that will be the same for each user and always be there no matter what workstation they logon to.

Sure - drop this in a login script...

copy "\\server\share\your shortcut.lnk" "%allusersprofile%\desktop" /y

I must be doing something wrong.  This opens the folder.  I just want a shortcut to appear on the desktop.

opens the folder?
How have you set it up?
Do you have it listed in a login script?

Ok, I got.  I checked the script and found an error.  Your initial comment worked.  Thanks.
