Yesterday Dell released their Dell Deployment Pack (DDP) for System Center Configuration Manager SP1. What is the Dell Deployment Pack? I'm glad you asked. According to dell:
The Dell Deployment Pack (DDP) is an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI)-based tool that integrates directly into the Microsoft® System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 (ConfigMgr) console. It eliminates the need for command-line tools and scripts normally used in the Dell™ OpenManage™ Deployment Toolkit (DTK) software. To configure and deploy your Dell systems, you need to select configuration options and commands on the GUI using drop-down lists and check boxes (see "Using The Dell Deployment Pack"). These selections make your system deployment an easy, automated task.
Using the ConfigMgr Task Sequence Editor, you can do the following with the Dell Deployment Pack:
