Submission + - Best solution for remote software deployment?

DownTownMT writes: Hey Slashdotters. I work as a Windows administrator in a small company with roughly 180 WinXP/2000 and 30 Win98 machines. Our current method for installing Windows patches is WSUS which works great for the non-98 PC's. But for installing software such as Adobe, QuickTime and various other tools our only method is to rely on the end-user to install it themselves or have our staff walk to each machine and install the software there.
I'm looking to get some feedback/recommendations as to what other systems administrators are using whether it be SMS, Track-It Deploy, Zenworks or something else. Thanks in advance.
