ALWAYS BACKUP REGISTRY

You can change the default normal.dot location by adding a new string called UserTemplates to the following key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\General

  You can get there by:
    A. Go to Start > Run > type regedit and hit enter.
    B. In the left side browser/folder tree, expand following the path indicated above
    C. Once you click on General, you'll see stuff on the right side.
    D.  Right-click on the right side of the window and choose New > String value
    E. Give it the name UserTemplates and hit enter
    F. Now, doubleclick the new UserTemplates entry you just made
    G. For the value, enter the path you want to use for your user templates (and Normal.dot) location
    H. Click OK and close the registry edito
    I. Restart Word and the setting should have take place

Export the registry key and then check this document on using gpo to make the registry change via gpo:
