Default Screensaver *settings* through Group Policy?

Hi all,

As we all know, you can set a GPO to choose which screensaver to run, how long to wait before running it and whether or not to ask for a password.

But, does anyone know how to centrally manage the Settings for that screensaver?

For example, if I set Marquee as the screensaver for the machines in our domain, how can I control what message is displayed etc?

No, going round every user and setting it for them is not an option.

Have found the required registry tree, will experiment with a custom template and post my results.
