[Samba] trust secret location in WinXP

At our campus we have ~40 machines. If a new program is needed we
install it on a single machine and replicate this one to the others.

The whole process is automated:
(Wake-On-LAN) (with pxe) booting a kernel via grub.
booting a minimal ram based linux and doing: netcat server port > /dev/hda
If we send a WOL packet the restore process starts.

The problem is that we have to rejoin each machine after.

So my question is: where WinXP stores this information?
Now I know the way howto mount NTFS RW (with captive:
http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/ )
And howto manipulate the registry:

The only question: where windows stores this information?
In the registry or in a file?
I want to backup that information at the start of the backup and write
back after the restore completes.

Any help would be appreciated.
