GPO to DELploy Desktop Icon on windows xp machine using windows 2003 GPO

Need to deploy a url favorite on all windows xp and windows 7 machine on their desktop using windows 2003 GPO.   Domain level is windows 2003
1 Solution
A URL to Internet Explorer or a URL to the actual Desktop as a shortcut?

If deploying to IE then User Config>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>URL's

If deploying a shortcut to the Desktop .. in 2003 .. I think your best option would be via script or batch script which you can deploy via GP also.

Logon script and: xcopy "%THISDIR%myshortcut.ico" "%PROFILESFOLDER%\all users\desktop"
