Exclamation Disabled Screensaver permenantly

Hi All,

I have some servers on RHEL 3/4, my users login using VNC, I want to disable screensaver for these users logged in through VNC (Users are on nis) and dont want to allow them to set any screensaver, just for the sake of saving cpu.

Any idea how to go about it? Something which may not let users over ride screensaver settings for these servers..

Thx in advance,

Remove the xscreensaver package? That certainly seems like the simplest option.
