Finally, something I agree with! :-) I'm right now playing with remote
installation using DCOM, currently in support of a distributed cluster sort
that we're working on. Viruses... well, I'll just say that my remote
installer is rather aggressive about identifying machines that it has
privileges (one way or another) to install software on... and if you include
accounts with easily guessed passwords, that turns out to be a whole lot of
machines... :-/
