Yes, we run dozens of machines from a single network installation.  
Depending on what extensions you need to install (e.g. win32all) you may
need to make some small manual adjustments to get it to work, but 
in essence you can just do a "non-admin" local install, then copy the
entire directory tree to the network.

the Macmillan Installer: http://www.mcmillan-inc.com/installer_dnld.html
