How to deploy bginfo?

I want to have bginfo on all of our servers. I can install it but then it is not there the next time I rdp in. How can I easily install it so everyone who rdp's in to these servers running Windows Server 2008?

Hi,
Just add BGINFO to your starup folder for ALL USERS.  Place the BgInfo.exe and the logon.bgi in the C:\windows\system32\bginfo\ directory

Then open Regedit or Regedt32.
Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Run
Make a new String value (REG_SZ) and name it BgInfo.

In the Value Data: C:\windows\system32\bginfo\BgInfo.exe C:\windows\system32\bginfo\logon.bgi /TIMER:0

Cheers,

Put it in the all users startup folder is the easiest...

Here is another ways too that a little sleeker.

Thank you athomsfere.

Please assume I have no idea how or where to do anything. Can you give me detailed step by step instructions?
