Is it possible to set 2 Home Page tabs in IE7 using Group Policy?

I have set the default in User Configuration > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > URLs > Important URLs...

multiple homepages are kept in the following registry keys:

Start Page (1st Tab): HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page
Secondary Pages (Other Tabs): HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Secondary Start Pages

You could script it so the registry keys are set each time a user logs on.

I've got it. Using logon scripts. You can use a GPO for user or computer to run the script.
GPO Location:
User config/windows settings/scripts/logon
The code:
// JavaScript Document
var navOpenInBackgroundTab = 0x1000;
var oIE = new ActiveXObject("InternetExplorer.Application");
oIE.Navigate2("http://www.homepage1.com");
oIE.Navigate2("http://www.homepage2.com", navOpenInBackgroundTab);
oIE.Visible = true;
