Very cool!  One question (having not tried it yet, but merely trying to
visualize)....does the regedit command run every time or just once and
then if the keys are in place it doesn't run? (I'm assuming it runs
everytime) I'm curious about the speed of the login script...do you find
it to run pretty quickly?  This is cool...thanks for sharing....you should
consider "wiki-ing" it at LTSP.org or preferably K12LTSP.org as many folks
could use this tweak!  :-)  Attaboy!
