Script to Set Hardware Manufacturer Variable

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I just need to know how to grab the manufacturer from the machine, such as IBM / Lenovo / Dell for an altiris script I am working on.  It will be used as a variable for injecting drivers into tons of different hardware.......

Echo Off
Echo Setting Variables for Quest XP migration
set osv=winxpsp2
set Library=v:\Library
set express=f:
set drvbase=%Library%\drivers
set firm=%Library%\rdeploy\Windows
set clients=%Library%\clients

??????????????What Should I Use Here????????????????????
echo Computer Manufacture is "%manufacture%"

Echo Inject Altiris Agent 6.0.2338 and Aclient 6.5.299.0 into Image
%firm%\firm.exe -recurse copy %clients% prod:drivers

Echo Inject Xcacls Utility to set permissions to c:\drivers folder
%firm%\firm.exe copy %Library%\Utils\xcacls.exe prod:windows

echo Computer Manufacture is "%manufacture%"
If "%manufacture%" == "IBM" goto IBM
If "%manufacture%" == "LENO" goto IBM
If "%manufacture%" == "Dell" goto Dell

I not a scripting expert, but I can show you the hint to get the manufacturing info from Windows. You may want to look in system32 for the file: oeminfo.ini
This file contains all the manufacture infomation as well as the computer made and model.

We need to do this to image systems, which may or may not currently have an operating system on them.  Thank you for the push in the right direction !
