As you all know SQL Server 2008 now has service packs available, has anyone used spade to install sql and the service pack, as well as sqldmo?

SQL Server 2008 supports slipstream installation, so maybe you could build your install files as slipstreams.

SQL SPADE doesn't currently support upgrading or applying service packs to existing installations.  It does however support the use of Slipstream installation media when installing new instances.  Details of creating a Slipstream install of SQL 2008/R2 can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd638062(v=sql.105).aspx.

Thank you for your feedback.
