I am delivering a webcast tomorrow on Windows Vista Deployment if you are interested. If you are interested in some pre-reading, check out the Desktop Deployment site which is where the bulk of what is in the webcast can be found. The webcast specifics can be found on the Technet Site. One thing to note is the reference to the "ximage" utility. It is actually "imagex" and that is what you will see in my session. I will be doing slightly different demos than the videos so it would still be beneficial to grab them.
You might also want to grab the Vista Deployment Step-by-Step Guide. It goes into much greater detail about the deployment process than we will be able to go during the webcast.
