Add font to windows xp remotely

Using Dameware and some googling found this great way to add a font to a remote computer. I'm sure you could script it for more fonts, but for a single font this works well enough.

copy the file to the remote computers %systemroot%\fonts folder.

add a new REG_SZ entry to the registry;
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts
