I sometimes use the $OEM$ folder to set a default website.

In the cmdlines.txt i set the following command:


"REGEDIT /S WebsiteDefault.reg"

Put this in the reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

;Changes Main Web Page to Planet.nl

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

"Start Page"="http://www.yahoo.com"

WebsiteDefault.reg file hase to be in the same folder as the cmdlines.txt
