Can't you configure Active Directory to push all the patches without actually having to use SUS (Group Policies)? Also, for non-MS updates, I would look at some kind of scripting option...

SUS is a Microsoft product, I know it's hard to believe that it's free. Unfortunately you will only be able to push out critical updates for 2K and XP Pro, servers and workstations and only critical updates to the OS not any other MS products installed on your machines.
