I haven't tried SCCM but I'm running SCOM and I've figured it out for the most part and I HAVE to do other things... but SCOM is a complicated beast. But once it's mostly in and working, you can more or less leave it to it's own devices and make checking the alerts part of a daily maintenance task.

WDS to deploy an image, careful manipulation of sysprep to pull in the right drivers, and lots of post-install registry hackery to do things like install management software, set some options, manage a couple of reboots and trigger software installation. Oh, and active directory pre-staging to allow automatic naming.

The image itself takes about 15 minutes to pull, sysprep about another five and software installation between 20 and 40, after which there's a final reboot and the user sees a normal login screen.
