Using group policy to disable Screensaver changes

Using group policy (or SMS??) I need to keep my users from being able to change their screensaver.  How can I go about doing this?  I have one domain.  The server is running Windows Server 2003 and the clients are all running Windows XP sp2.

Hi!

Group Policy can configure screensaver settings. Use Group Policy Managment Console, to creat new group policy object which should be linked to OU with user accounts. Edit GPO and configure screensaver settings. They can be found under User Configuration\Administrative templates\Control Panel\Display.

If you need more details, let me know...

There are four policies that are used to manage the screen saver. You can access all of them in the Group Policy Editor using this path:

User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Control Panel | Display
