You can follow the instructions located here for general instructions on how to Publish a Program for distribution.
You will need a wmi filter because there are 2 versions x86 and x64 versions that you have to distribute.  Also you should check that it is not already installed also via wmi or powershell or vbs scripting

Distributing the package using a network source

If you chose the File option on the Media Selection page of the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 9, IEAK 9 creates a \Flat subdirectory within the \Builds folder. This sub-directory contains the setup file, IE9setup.exe, which can easily be copied to a shared network resource. You can then give your users a link to the Setup file.

Signing your custom packages

Internet Explorer has security features that help protect users from downloading harmful programs. Depending on the security level and the version, the user may be prevented from, or warned against, downloading programs that are not digitally signed.

The custom .cab files created by the Internet Explorer Customization Wizard 9 should be signed, unless you preconfigure your users' local intranet zone with a security setting of Low. Any custom components you distribute with your browser package for these platforms should also be signed.
