How can I setup a wallpaper that is used by all users?  This is actually on a terminal server running Win 2003.

you can edit the Group Policy of the TS, in the user configuration -> administrative templates -> desktop -> active desktop folder you can set the "Active desktop wallpaper" option. You can also stop your users from changing the wallpaper by going to the user configuration -> administrative templates -> Control Panel -> display folder and enabling the "prevent changing wallpaper" option
yeah that and a whole page of answers if you google "terminal server user desktop wallpaper" , i think the one posted i s the fourth hit.
