powershell examples to manage a windows network


I now have a few hundred windows 2k3 systems I need to manage without spending much.   I understand I can find and build powershell scripts to go to systems, run commands and return the results.  

Has someone that is reading this done this ?   Where are the good scripts to use ?  

I need to manage and perhaps add packages to systems.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you taken a look at the Microsoft 2K3 Management tools?

Secondly, take a look at the PowerGUI Community. The Powershell tool with a GUI interface might be of some help as well.  http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/powergui/m
