This answer is *not* Gentoo based (sorry guys), but if this is to 
install the machines from scratch, you could use DiegoStart. Simply put 
the DiegoStart files in your gentoo machine with samba and then install 
all your machines automatically in unattended mode including all updates 
and any software that you want (if it can be installed in unattended 
mode, or you have a Ghost license to use AI Builder and create silent 
install packages). There are also things like nlite and Ryan VM update 
packs that will allow you to apply updates to your Windows install 
sources, but none of these will work on machines which are already 
installed.

For machines already installed, you could manually download the updates 
to a share and then write a batch script that basically applies all 
updates in silent mode. Look here for the silent install switches.

If you get CYGWIN with ssh installed in all the windows machines then 
you could actually ssh in and run the commands without having to walk to 
the machines.
