Question about deployment projects

I have an app that I sell online through a variety of outlets. Each time I
have had a minor update or patch I have had to create a new deployment
package and manually upload all of the packages to each of my outlets (about
15 in all).

Is it possible to use the deployment project in visual studio 2003 using web
bootstrapper to simplify this? As I understand the web bootstrapper it
creates a setup.exe file which references an msi file (which contains the
actual application and initial settings) and put the msi file on a web server
and hand out the setup.exe file to everyone.

As a result the advantage that I would see is I could just give the
setup.exe file to my outlets and keep the msi file on my publicly accessible
web server. And when I need to post a patch I can just upload the new msi
file to my server. Am I correct in this interpretation of the documentation?

Are there any potential problems that others have had here that maybe I'm
not seeing?

Thanks in advance,
