not really - if puppet hasnt been configured on the client then puppet cant manage it. what I usually do is install puppet as part of the build - add yum repos and then yum install - will then need to edit puppet.conf to point at puppetmaster start puppet and get certificate signed if not using autosig.

puppet enterprise has a handy script you can run via curl simplified install

thanks for your update. It will be more useful for unix based operating system. However, we are having good amount of Windows machines which needs to be added into Puppet environment. Any best way to install puppet client on windows machines?
