How to I assign programs to client computers using 2003 server?

I'm tasked with setting up a network for my school.  So far, things have gone fine.  My question regards assigning/publishing programs to client computers using group policy.  I'd like to assign Microsoft Office to all of our student client workstations using group policy, but I'm unsure of how exactly to go about it.  I've heard that it's possible to install to many workstations at once, but how?  If you need any further information, I'd be happy to provide it.  Thanks.

Thanks for the link.  I should have mentioned that I'm installing MS Office 2003, not 2007.  I will look into the solutions you linked to, but if you know of another thread dealing specifically with Office 2003, I'd appreciate it.

  Hi scohot
     All you have to do is, creating a silent install msi package for office 2003 and deploy it via Software installation policy. Guide below describes ways of modifying office installation.

The way is same for both office 2007 and 2003. Comments in the link I mentioned in my first comment will be useful also.
