How can I configure xscreensaver to automatically load for every user

See the thread in the archives titled "bash profile does not get loaded"
and substitute xscreensaver for profile.
create a file called
and in it put the command line that you want to use for xsreensaver like
the number at the start of the name dictates the order in which the
scripts get run (99 will get run after everything else), the
xfree86-common bit means it gets run for all WMs (i think) and the bit
after the underscore can be whatever you like (hopefully describes what
the script does :)).
I created a script:
echo date > /tmp/screensaver
and there is no file /tmp/screensaver so it's not being executed.
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 56 2004-09-29 06:38 99xfree86-common_xscreensaver
Got it working.
Needed to change to file name from '99' to '98'
change the string to:
nice /usr/bin/xscreensaver -no-splash &
and it's working well now.
BTW, the '&' is really important.
