Create a group policy and link it to your OU. The setting for the screensaver is under 'User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Control Panel/Personalization'. There you can set the screensaver executable name. Note that unless you are using a default screensaver (for example the trusty old scrnsave.scr) you will have to ensure that the file is copied to the client. If the file is not there, the policy will have no effect.

For the desktop background it's 'User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Desktop \ Desktop.

I see. is there any way that the server can dictate it? do I have to load the file on all the desktops?
The desktop background can be on an UNC share

great... I tried and it did work, but cam up with a black background.. any thought on why?>  the is a .jpeg and in the folder .
All users need read access to the folder.  Try opening the picture from the client using Windows Explorer to see if you have sufficient permissions and that you can reach the UNC share.
