GPO forcing Corp Wallpaper

I currently have a 2008 domain controller and a mix of XP and Windows 7 clients.  I would like to create a GPO that will force our corporate wallpaper and not allow users to change it. I have found some links on EE but none are real clear, nor do they mention XP and WIN7 mixed environment.  Please assist!!
