Can I distribute a screensaver to 80 workstations at once?

We'd like to create a slide show presentation as a screensaver and implement it throughout our network (approximately 80 workstations). Can this be done just one time at the domain server (all computers are running Win2k Pro or Win2k server), or do I have to load each individual computer with the screensaver software? If it can be done at the server level, where is this implemented on the server?

You will need to distribute the software to each system. But you can simplify it by installing the software via script in a GPO or as MSI-distributed software in a GPO.
