Add applications to the Dock via Apple Remote Desktop

Fantastic Hint, except I get the following error when I test it.
"Could not parse: <dict><key>tile-data</key><dict>\
<key>file-data</key><dict><key>_CFURLString</key>\
<string>/Applications/Kahootz.app</string><key>_CFURLStringType</key>\
<integer>0</integer></dict><key>file-label</key><string>Kahootz</string>\
<key>file-type</key><integer>41</integer></dict><key>tile-type</key>\
<string>file-tile</string></dict>. Try single-quoting it."
(Exclude the Speech marks). I have used a direct copy of the code pasted with the correct adjustments. It appears that it strips out the ' whe it tries to run.

Any Sugegstions

This isn't going to work in OS X 10.4.x. The pref file (.plist) does not look like a typical xml file.

Example:
bplist00Þ OP&&QOQQTUQWX_persistent-apps]magnificationXtilesize_wvous-br-modifier_wvous-bl-modifierZtrash-fullXautohide_checked-for-dashboardWversionYmod-count_wvous-br-cornerZlaunchanim_wvous-bl-corner_persistent-others¯&+3;DMW`hpx?‰‘š£³ºÂÉÒÛãëòù (/7@GÒYtile-dataYtile-typeÑZfile-labelP^dashboard-tileÓ)*TGUIDÕ !"]file-mod-dateYfile-type_parent-mod-dateYfile-data¾cëþXTerminal)Àm oÓ#$%

If someone now how to do this with the terminal or ARD on a tiger box I would be very interested.
