Validate Windows systems after WSUS has deployed patches.

This is a broad question so I am going to try and keep it as simple as possible.

We deploy Windows patches via WSUS to hundreds of Windows 2000 and 2003 servers on our network.  I would like to be able to run a job or a script (preferably automatically at a certain time) to validate against each server.  I need it to tell me what update was installed, if a reboot is required, and/or if it has already been rebooted.  Can this be done, and can it be done outside of WSUS?

You could use MSBA to see which updates were installed, and what updates are yet to be installed.
