Can I send a message to all Win2k domain users prior to a server restart?

I'd like to restart our Win2K file share machine and I would like to send a message to all domain users that the shutdown is imminent.  I know that using the Shutdown.exe or PsShutdown gives the option to notify the local user, but I'd like to hit all logged in machines in the domain.
