Want to automate setting my Openoffice 3.1 preferences

I install openoffice on lots of computers and would like to automate the setting of my preferences.
I always go to options/Load/Save and set Document types to Microsoft.  Would like to create a bat or reg file that sets these but have not been able to find where these and other settings get stored.

These setting are stored in the setup.xcu file.

In Vista -
C:\Users\XXUSERNAMEXX\AppData\Roaming\OpenOffice.org\3\user\registry\data\org\openoffice

In XP -
C:\Documents and Settings\XXUSERNAMEXX\Application Data\OpenOffice.org\3\user\registry\data\org\openoffice

Just do one installation and change the settings the way you like it.  Then copy setup.xcu.  After your installation in complete on the new systems, just copy this file onto the machine.
