Fastest way to update 500 XP machines with patches?

I have a deadline to meet and I won't make it without a very good, very dependable automation tool.  
I know there are some out there but I need something dependable.  Would like some input on what
you have used that you loved, liked and disliked.  Your input will truely help.

Why not go with free, Microsoft product that supports 2000, XP, and 2003 - Windows Server Update Services

Why the B grade?  What about it don't you like and why wouldn't you comment and give me the chance at an A grade?

ok...just read your profile....here's my comment.

I am working on a secure network and can't connect to the commercial network for updates.  All my updates are on a server.  I need to point the software to the server/updates and push them out to the machines
