Script to install Drivers on PC from a network resource

Hi I was wondering if anyone out there could help me or have a script that can do the following
We are adding USB devices to a plethora of machines instead of going to each PC logging on etc installing the drivers. Would it be possible to install these drivers remotely calling the driver files from a network resource? So that would enable us to walk around plug in the device then from a central location we can Remote Desktop in to the PC and run the script? This would save us a lot of time as logging on to each PC can take sometime to complete.

Also after these drivers are installed would it then be possible to install a *.msi from a network resource as well? Or the script can call the *.msi and then run the installation?

Thanks in advance any help  would be appreciated.

does the driver have any exe files, you could createa batch file which calls the .exe silently

call "\\server\share\USBdriver\setup.exe" /quiet or /q or /slient

call "\\server\share\USBdriver\setup.msi"
 
Do the users have local admin?
if not you could create a batch file which also has psexec with username and passwords
