Subject:   Set 'View details' as Windows default

How do you tweak the registry in Win 2k or
XP so that when Windows launches for the first time on a new pc, it shows the 'details' view rather than large/small icons?

I know how to set this via View/details, then
Tools/Folder Options/View/Apply to all folder - but I would like to be able to set the registry entry without going through this rigmarole every time I configure a pc. (ie, I want to automate the procedure)

There must be a way of doing this....

Thanks a zillion if you can solve this one where everyone else has failed!
