IE6/IE7 to IE8 upgrade withgroup policy

Hi,
I am looking to upgrade approx 1,500 computers across a vast network, with various bandwidths, from IE6/7 - IE8. I found this on the net:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc985339.aspx

Can i use the above to upgrade from IE6/7 to IE8. OR does anyone have other links that i should be looking at. I think Group Policy is the way to do it, i would like to customise it too.Any help/tips appreciated

Unless you have a mechanism to stage the installation files at each location, you're going to have to pull everything over the WAN anyway. WSUS is nice because the user doesn't have to wait for IE8 to install when starting the computer.

Not sure what customizations you would like to do. The easiest way to deploy is to approve IE8 in WSUS. That's what I did.

Hi Kevin....i would like to get rid of the stupid start up pop up when you open IE8 for the first time, thats just one off the top of my head.
WSUS? Im not too up on bandwidth trottle (thats a feature right?)...as our network is well scattered. 200 sites...ranging from 2mb/100mb line, 5 year old pc's to up to date ones.
