I've created a custom ADM to change the users default shell when they log in.

The .adm I created is below  I changed the .exe for this example.  It shows in the Administrative templates, but there is no option to enable etc it.  When I log into a machine with the user the Explorer shell is used.

server: 2003  in a Domain
workstation:  xp
