Automate Installation via add remove programs MS Ofice 2003

Our organistaion has a W2k3 Domain with XP Pro clients on sp2 or 3.

Currently we use Lotus notes 7.0.2 as our email system and have MS office 2003 small business edition installed excluding Outlook. We are soon to be migrating to Outlook 2003 and exchange 2007
My goal is to centrally manage the update/install of Outlook 2003 rather than visit each machine and achieve this via control panel>add remove programs> microsoft office>change>add remove features> outlook etc.

I also need to ensure that the is little if any effect on user performance, and that one installed Outlook does not assume or become the default email client.

Any suggestions on how to achieve this would be greatly appreciated
