True Remote OS deployment

Guys,

I am investigating ways to deploy Windows across remote sites.
Do Microsoft solutions provide a way to deploy XP/Vista/2003/Longhorn to
remote bare-metal machines? There are several stipulations.

1) Once the bare-metal client is awake, no further input is available.
(There is no tech staff remotely).
2) The Solution need to identify the MAC address and deploy the 'elected'
image to the bare-metal machine.

I've been reading the documetation, and I'm not sure RIS, wdsutil/BDD, SMS
OS deployment does this. Can anyone confirm please? The basic precept is
that, ther will be minimal user input, but we need to put customised images
onto bare-metal machines .. and we will have their MAC addresses from
previous audits.

Thank you.
