Silent driver install across network

Specs: Windows XP
Here's my scenario...

I have a customer with an enterprise of clients without administrative privileges, which means that they cannot install usb drivers for the usb printer. I'd like to have the administrator of the network push down the drivers for the front two USB ports for all clients on the network (lets say 500 total clients).

I should have been able to do this with something like Sysdiff from Microsoft, but that was back in the NT/2000 days. I'd like to know if there is something more up to date for XP. Any thoughts?

This should have been able to help me create an msi installation that the admin could have pushed down to all of the clients that would have allowed the printer to work as soon as the printer was plugged in, in theory.

I'm up for any ideas on any products that would take care of being able to push down these drivers, or instructions to pass on.
