What is best way to share tools/scripts that are used by WMX steps?

I have created many custom GPTools, scripts and models that I have incorporated into WMX workflows as steps. What is the best way to share these tools across my organization, so that the steps work for everyone?

For example, I have attempted to store a toolbox on our ArcSDE Geodatabase, but when I set a path to a tool script from WMX to the toolbox in SDE - the path calls on my user name and C drive:

/toolboxpath:"C:\Documents and Settings\motta\APPLICATION DATA\ESRI\Desktop10.0\ArcCatalog\Connection to diaengsql01.sde\DEN.WMX.SharedWMXToolbox" /tool:BatchDescribeProjection64Bit


Additionally, our organization is utilizing 32 bit and 64 bit operating systems. This is causing me frustration, because scripts are stored in different folders for 32 and 64 bit users. Should I store them on a network drive?

Is there anyway to store and call upon tools in SDE? Scripts? Should I be thinking about .dll's?
