Application deployment

Hi I am wondering other than SMS Server 2003, is there any other way or clever approach to deploying application to my XP users in Windows 2003 Active environment?

I need to distribute Adobe reader Version 8.1.0 to about 400+ users and I as dont  fancy  physically visit them one by  one to install this. I was hoping maybe there is a way to auto perform silent deployment to their machines.

 I have successfully tested deployment using combination of Group Policy and ZAP file so I know this will work but this require that you give all the users local Administration right for them to go through Add/Remove program to do this by themselves is a problem.

Any suggestion would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.
