Changing time to 24 hour format on Windows Terminal Server 2000 and Thin Client RDP

I am running Windows 2000 Terminal Services on a 2000 Server.  I have my 150+ users logging in from Thin Clients using RDP.  I have been asked to make sure that every user that logs in has military time as opposed to the current 12 hour clock.  How do I go about doing this?  I've changed the regional settings on the Terminal Server to the 24 hour format and it reflects in the registry and on the terminal server itself, but not on the individual logins.  I know nothing about logon scripts, if this is the way to go, so I could PLEASE use some step by step guidance if this is what I have to do.

Please help!

Have no W2K machine here to test but this should work:

Create a text file named SetTime.reg (watch the extension!). Paste the below lines in it. Then import this reg-file at your server(s) while logged in as administrator.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"setTimeFormat"="reg add \"HKCU\\Control Panel\\International\" /v \"sTimeFormat\" /d \"HH:mm:ss\" /f"
