Office 07 SP2 and Outlook to existing Office 12 deployment

We have an existing Office 2007 environment, without Outlook. Our plan is to drop Lotus Notes, and move to Outlook, and add Office 07 SP2. What would be the best plan of attack for deploying these in one operation? SCCM is our deployment method.
I have never worked with the setup of Office deployment, so I am not sure the best approach to this issue. I have tested the Office Customization Tool, but I have not been able to setup SP2 and Outlook with an existing Office 12 configuration. I cannot find anything in the Message Board.

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

How are you planning on deploying things? SMS 2003/SCCM 2007, Active Directory GPOs, Altiris, manually, etc...

Does your existing installation of Office come with Outlook and you just need to install the application?

In general, I'd probably look at removing Lotus, then install Outlook, and then install Office SP2. But exactly how you do it will depend on your deployment methods...

SCCM is our deployment method. Our existing install of Office does have Outlook, it was just pulled out when they first did the install.

I just need a good grip on how to package Outlook with SP2, or should I do them seperately? Do I create an MSP for Outlook, combine Outlook and SP2, ect...

We are retiring Lotus Notes soon, and they want to have Outlook already on the boxes before hand.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
