Remote OS and application installation

I want to be able to install Windows and applications directly from a server without having to do anything on then pc apart from turning it on. I know it's possible using msi packages, but is there any 3rd party software that would make this easier? Currently I use Ghost to make images of pc's I build, then roll it out to all pc's containing the same hardware.

I would appreciate any pointers to good sites and/or books on how to do this as well.

Thanks

Use the software installation via a GPO in AD.  They use the MSI packages you mentioned.  You could also use SMS.
