Linux Dividends; Friendly "Ghost"

Friendly Ghost

Regarding Steven Hill's Sneak Preview of Symantec's Ghost Corporate Edition 8.0 (Jan. 22, 2004), I'm planning to buy the product to manage roughly 200 PC configurations remotely. One of Ghost CE's selling points is the ability to roll out Windows Hotfixes and Service Packs.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how to install a Hotfix to all Windows 2000 PCs at midnight. Is it simply a matter of pushing the image of the Hotfix, then executing the Hotfix? Or do I need to create an AI (Automatic Install) package for every Hotfix?
