OSX - Agent: Best Practices?

Friends & Countrymen:

We need a more effective way of installing the Mac inventory agent on HUNDREDS of machines.

Does Novell have a white paper for "Best Practices" on creating an installer that can be distributed via ARD to hundreds of Macs at once? We simply can't go computer to computer and install the agent individually on each machine, manually entering the collection server.

I'm using Composer (from JAMF) as a snapshot tool during the installation process, but I'm having difficulty in determining which files I need to scrub or delete after we've captured the software but BEFORE we distribute it.

Any help from the community would be super-groovy.
