various options there depending on how much you want to spend !

Server 2003 includes RIS which can be used to install OS's when starting up from a PXE network boot

AD also can be used to push MSI installs but it is not very user friendly

Norton Ghost I believe do an enterprise product for remote OS installation sorry not a clue what it is called though

and for further ( sorry a bit MS centric here! ) Microsoft's SMS which can be used to install / remove software and do inventory of software and hardware.
