Application Deployment - Simple

Need assistance with how to deploy various versions of MS Office in network.  
Using Active Directory on Server 2000!  

Where I am Stuck:
How do I apply updates to Office before deployment?
How do I set-up group policy so that every instance of MS Office I assign to an employee will load on their machine?

Scenario:
Virtual Machine Windows 7 environment
Will make all applications part of base image except 3 versions of Office.
Want to be able to easily deploy any of our already purchased versions of MS Office with updates applied (XP Standard, 2003 Standard, 2003 professional, 2010 Professional, 2013 Standard, 2013 Professional) to the appropriate user.
Will be using Persona Management on these machines.

Hi,
I have no experience as an administrator, but in maintaining my own system, I have learnt that merging updates into an installation package is called slipstreaming. I did it with
Windows 2000 when a hardware problem necessitated frequent rebuilds.

Googling  'slipstream office 2003 sp3' produces several how-to hits. I guess that would apply to the other versions.
