specify machine OU

I am looking for a method to create the machine account in a specific OU, instead of the default "Domain/Computers" in the Windows 7 scripted install. Anyone out there done this?

In the xml file, find the the UnattendedJoin component and add the line for MachineObjectOU
<component name="Microsoft-Windows-UnattendedJoin" processorArchitecture="amd64" publicKeyToken="31bf3856ad364e35" language="neutral" versionScope="nonSxS">
<MachineObjectOU>OU=OULEVEL, OU=OUNAME1, DC=DOMAIN</MachineObjectOU>
