Work Group Templates change in Word via Group Policy

We are on a W2K3 domain with Office 2003 / Office 2002 on the desktop.   We are wanting to change the default file location for templates in MS Word (tools >> options >> File locations tab >> workgroup templates) to a location on the network so that the latest corpoate templates can be hosted.

Updates on this domain are done via GPUPDATE.  

Can anyone advise of the steps needed to initiate a change in the default workgroup templates via group policy please?

You can just import Microsoft's policy templates for Office; this will not only let you set all default paths in a GPO, but lots of other Office settings as well.
