The setting you want under a GPO is \User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Desktop

There is a setting for 'Desktop Wallpaper' which you can use.

You can either make this change using an existing GPO or create a new one.

As jake has suggested above that will sort your windows XP clients. WIndows 7 has a slight issue with desktop settings via GPO this hotfix should sort any problems if you have a black screen when you try setting wallpapers ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977944 )

You can set the desktop to a small color .jpg swatch and set to tile or set to a file that doesn't exist and it will use default blank background for xp machines.  Users will not be able to change.
