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.
