I have found the Chrome .msi along with the templates for Group Policy, but it seems if you configure the homepage through GP it doesn't allow the user to change it.

I am interested in just setting the default homepage with a custom silent installation of the .msi. Is this possible?

The Chrome preferences are stored in cleartext the following file (in Windows 7):

"C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences"

Setting the homepage is just a matter of parsing out that text file and setting the "homepage" line to your desired homepage, and the "homepage_is_newtabpage" line to 'false'.
