can I do this from answer file or do I need to script post install?

    .... there will probably be a few different posts with this same title over
    the next few days as I'm working through some customizations on a deployment
    project... any item that can be taken care of via the standard unattend
    files I do there, otherwise I script the setting/config item. This is for
    windows server 2003.

    I didn't see the following config item listed in the deploy.cab ref.chm
    file:

    right-click desktop -> properties -> desktop tab -> customize desktop button

    here you can check of to display the My Documents folder, My Computer,
    Internet Explorer, and My Network Places on the desktop.

    I need to configure these. Did I miss the option in unattended.txt
    reference? or do I script this one? If I script it, which I assume I will
    be, I also assume it will be a direct registry edit, anyone know the keys I
    need to get to?

    any input is appreciated, thanks.
