Remove Sysprep

I read the MS knowledge base articles and all of them require the boot cd, which takes time. My company gets new laptops every so often to give to employees and before we deploy them, we put on our image which contains additional programs that we get. However after that is all said and done, it is re-sysprepped for them to use.

So my question is, how do I remove sysprep temporarily at least, install the additional programs we put on them, change the wallpaper, and modify the network settings (turn off DHCP, change to static IP, and change netmask) and reseal the laptop.

Can this be done easily, as maintaining images in ghost is rather tedious since laptop hardware specs change so quickly, changing graphics drivers is rather annoying.


Edit: I rather not go through the sysprep process and put dummy info and resysprep. If that is the best way, then let me know. Mainly I ask, because I want this process to be automated much as possible.
