I'm interested in scripting common Regional Settings to all our networked workstations.  We're running a Windows Server2003 domain and XP SP2 and SP3 workstations.

    These are registry settings which can be pushed through a script.

    I'm a novice scripter - can I push simply those settings in the key, or do I have to push the whole key to each workstation.  I'm worried about problems this could cause between various models and types of PC's with varying service packs, etc.

    You need add the reg add to add teh registry keys.
    example: REG add "HKCU\Control Panel\International" /v sShortDate /t REG_SZ /d "yyyy-MM-dd" /f
