What do you mean with new to Altiris? Any Altiris Deployment Suite or Wise Package Studio?
Anyway.
Try using the command schtasks. With that command you can create scheduled tasks on any machine. Try using it together with regedit /s and the appropriate .reg file which contains your registry key.

Hope that helps

Choose "Script Job" and in the embedded script textbox, just enter a reg command (which will run as a batch file).

On XP systems, type REG.EXE ADD /? for help...

If you are running an earlier version of Windows, you may want to create a VBScript job. Use the wizard provided here to create the code you need: http://www.adminscripteditor.com/wizards/view.asp?id=22

You can run the VBScript in the embedded script by including a comment that includes the term "VBSCript" see link below for details: http://itninja.com/question/how-does-pxe-work?8
