I think if you copy ~/.gnome and ~/.gnome_private from the configured
machine to each user's machine it will work, or at least mostly work
(it's possible that some applications store hostname or username dependent
stuff in the config files, unfortunately...)

I'm working on a better solution called GConf, and I hope all
sysadmins-who-know-how-to-code will help me out so that it's as nice as
possible.:-)  'gconf' module in CVS
