installing flash through GPO

Hi experts,
i have more than 150 computers in my Company, they all are on domain, and the users dont have local administrative rights on the system. When they open some websites they need to install flash so that they can view the page but they cant install it becoz they dont have admin rights, i want to set a policy for all the users that whenever any add ons like flash or java is needed they can be installed directly without admin rights, i dont want to give them power users right also, how can i set a policy for the users to directly view the pages in which they need to install add ons like flash, java etc.

well actually i need to install, for instance in some websites it asks for flash, if the site doesnt find flash it prompts to install flash and directs to flsah website where you install that, but while installing that it doesnt ask to download an exe file but it asks to install active x controls and than it install but he should be admin of that system or else it cant install, so my question is how to install through group policy, if you could tell me step by step would be appreciated.

If SMS is installed u should first create collection which should contain some pilot-pcs for testing!
Then create a Package where u configure the data source from your application...under the package u have to create a program for examble "install adobe flash player v..." under which u should define the install string...if it is a .msi file u will be able to install it with the parameter /qb-! which means silent, so the user does not recognize it!
Last u should create a advertisment which defines which package will be installed on which collection at a specified time and bandwith...
