I need to create an unattended install for Windows XP for 8 different model 
desktops/laptops.  The machines will be logging in to Windows AD (Windows 
2000 Server).  I can do basic unattend.txt type work but was wondering what 
apps people are using to script their OS's (GUI based and easy to use but 
powerful).  Im not too good at VBScript, Kix etc so if there was a GUI front 
ended app that does the hard work, that would be great.

I basically need to be able to automate a script that installs an OS, some 
apps, hotfixes, puts the pc in a domain, adds system variables and syspreps 
ready for ghosting (which would be the method of deployment).  We have 700 
desktops I need to rebuild hence me wishing to automate the entire process

How do people out there do this??
