There are a couple of NT Resource Kit utilities you can use; regini.exe will probably do the trick. If you want to run this remotely, you will need to use the command scheduler (ATsvc.exe) or put it into a login script. Hope this helps!

You can have the reg files copied down to the workstations and then run a batch file, all contained in the logon script. The only downside is that the DOS window will show up on the screen. You can, however, set in the batch file to have the echo off (you will just see a blank screen with whatever the batch file is called as the title of the window) and have the window close on completion of running the batch file. This is what we were doing before starting our migration to 2000.
good luck,If you want some examples, email me and I'll shoot them off to you.

You can also hide the logon script box. Technet Article I Q176197 is called "How to Hide the Logon Script Dialog Box on a Windows NT Client."

You can also make a logon script window very small and positions off-screen by doing the following:

If your users close the logon script window, hide it.
Navigate to HKEY_USERS\<each user>\Console

Edit or Add Value the following two REG_DWORD values:

WindowSize and with the Radix at Hex, set it to 050005

WindowPosition and with the Radix at Hex, set it to 04FF06FF

This makes the Window very small and positions it off screen so they can't see it and hence can't close it.
