The information is stored in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control
Panel\Appearance. You can save this info in a file by running regedit, going
to the key, and doing File|Export Registry File. Just running this file on
another machine will then overwrite the color schemes with the ones you
saved from the first machine.

According to
there are some higher level automatic config tools on the win95 CD itself,
and there's also the win95 resource kit with a bunch of stuff on it.

*grrrr* this is precisely what I feared....that it wouldn't be
accessible and that I would have to spend two hours setting up
each machine one at a time... I want a file that I can just zap
over the network... why can't it be that simple?
