Powerpoint Default Template in Office 2003 on Terminal Services

Hi all,

quick question. our company has created a default powerpoint template we wish to use. we operate in a Terminal Server environment on server 2003. my question is how do i apply the template as default to all users, across all of our terminal servers?

through group policy i ran a batch file with the line - xcopy "\\server\share\workskil.pot" "c:\documents and settings\%username%\application data\microsoft\templates\"
however i couldn't get the file to copy across.
