How do I change the default file location for all users in MS Office 2003?

I would like the default save location in Office 2003 (Word, Excel & Powerpoint) to point to the user's home directory on the network which is \\server\share\Users\%username% where %username% is the name of their actual network ID. I know how to do this manually but I am looking for a way to deploy this to all of our users via a registry setting or something. Is this possible?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
