I've got a script that installs VNC remotely to NT4 (with or without a 
domain). Check out www.darkage.co.uk/vnc/

Either have a pop with that, or use the commands I've put in to 
tweak your batch file.

You're on the right track, although the SC command can be a bit of 
a bitch to get just right. I use this line:

SC \\%1 create WinVNC binpath= "%remotetarget%:\Program Files\
ORL\VNC\WinVNC.exe -service" type= own type= interact start= auto

NB: %remotetarget% is a value I pull from the remote machine to 
find it's system drive.

I'd stay away from AT if I were you. Getting the timing just right is 
more problematic than it's worth. I found it a hell of a lot easier to 
push VNC on to a machine, rather than have the remote PC install 
it at a set time period.
