Unattendet installation is an installation where you provide a file that answers the question the setup program has, under installation.

Sysprep has to do with changing the SID.

Remote installation services is a tool, where you make an image of a working system and then use that image to install other similar machines.

Here are some links that give more info:

Not exactly correct.

RIS is a PXE environment supporting Windows OS-installations (W2K,XP or W2K3), both the unattended and the sysprep way.
