Office 2003 and WSUS

What is the best practice for patching office 2003 admin installations?

What I really would like to do is to use WSUS to patch Office on clients and terminalservers. It seems like WSUS does not patch admin installed office installations, so it's quite useless.

Any good ideas?

"It IS possible to patch clients that installed from an Administrative Installation Point (AIP)

The AIP must be at the latest service pack (baseline) only (no post SP patches may exist on the AIP). "

but what do you mean with this?

I have made an AIP with SP1 included. Is it still possible to update the clients with WSUS, or should i downgrade the AIP to standard and than let WSUS do the job.
