Automatic fax account creation for WinVista WFS to use Win Server 2003 Fax Server?

Client Workstations: WinVista
Fax Server: Win Server 2003 R1


For each user of each workstation, an admin user has to approve the
fax account creation process in order for it to be fully completed.
Totally stupid. There must be a better way. Is there some way (GPO,
FusionInventory, wpkg, opsi, unattended.sf.net) to push out WFS
settings to all users for all machines joined to the domain? Sounds
easier to switch to HylaFax.

What is the best way to automate this? i can't stand around for each
user to login to each workstation and have them recreate the fax
account and then approve it with admin credentials.
