What's easiest way to deploy shortcuts (simple ones like to \\server\share\folder\) via group policy?  I need to have some on the desktop and some in \system32\ as well.

We use scripts (bat or VBS).
For the desktop script - place it in USER LOGON scripts
For \system32\ - place it in SYSTEM STARTUP
This was permissions will ok.

sorry for the delay, underground for a while

I'll give you cred since that is what we ended up doing but the script itself would have been cooler.
