Windows Updating through a Novell Script

I got a question from our LAN group.  They normally apply patches to
client systems through commands in the Novell login script.  The latest
security rollup patch announced in MS04-004 has different versions
associated with different versions of IE.

Does anyone know a handy way to identify the IE version in a script?
Right now, they're also looking at ways to run Windows Update from the
script, as well.  Any experience with this, anyone?
