Thanks to everyone for you replies.  I, however, have one more
question.
We are not in a position to purchase a campus wide product like
Updateexpert

Has anyone had any success with writing some type of logon script in
any scripting language (I am not a scripting guru) that runs upon
logon that can determine which OS is being used and determines which
hotfixes/service packs are needed and installs those reboots and upon
reboot determines that machine is up to par and proceeds to load the
OS.

Is this even possible?

  We have about a 800 user environment and are looking for a way to
  push down critical updates to the users.  We do not want to rely on
  the users to go to Windows updates or even if we have the
  notification turned on we don't want to rely on them to download
  them.  We want to be able to test them on our test machines then
push
  them down at once to all of the users.

  How do you handle this?
