For loading several desktops at once, here's a quick way to push a Netscape preference pointing the browser to a specific server WITHOUT using ZENworks for Desktops or NAL.

The Netscape proxy values are saved in a file called prefs.js. You could choose to push a "model" copy of this to the users machines during login. A straight NCOPY should do the trick. The file does however hold a load of other values including history of sites visited etc. Netscape reads the prefs.js file to determine the proxy address and port when its launched.
