SCCM 2007 and WSUS. Download but do Not Auto install MS Updates on selected Collection

Hello,
I need to verify if it is possible to set SCCM 2007 Software Updates deployment to download the approved updates to the selected Collection, but NOT auto install these updates.
There are two settings that seem to address this. In the Template there is a duration setting. "When a template is used to create a deployment, the deadline setting in the deployment defaults to the time an update is available plus the configured duration." I specified the maximum which is 4 weeks.
Then there is the Deployment Schedule setting that states..."Specify whether the software updates should automatically install on clients at a configured deployment deadline." I set this to Do Not set a deadline for  software update installation.
1. Will this prevent SCCM from automatically installing the updates?  
2. Will SCCM still download the updates and pop-up a notification (I did configure this notification) so that the user can manually install the updates?
3. Or there something else I need to do to accomplish this?
(***We are only trying to do this for a special group of computers. Most computers are configured to install the updates automatically after the deadline***)
Thank you,
cbenson

1. Yes it will just appear in the notification area, staff will need to check the updates to install.
2. Yes as mentioned above, the installation is always determined by the Schedule Deadline, if this isn't set then staff are only notified.

Cheers
