We are creating images of Windows 7 to deploy via SCCM.  What is the best way to deploy the client so that new computers get the client quickly so that it can begin communicating with the SCCM server and installing packages?

It is best practice to include the SCCM client installation in your Task Sequence. When the client is installed you can continue to add addtional steps in your Task Sequence and install the packages you want after Win7 is finished.

This way you don't have to wait for additional advertisement after the completion of the TS.
