Newbie to scripting, question on checking device installation

While busily looking over Powershell 2.0 for Dummies, and Windows Powershell in Action, one of my tasks is to automate or script some repetitive computer configurations.
One of those configurations is to add a Microsoft Loopback adapter to a Windows XP box, but first, to check if it had already been installed and configured, and if not, to go ahead and do it.
Is this something that PowerShell would be best suited for, and if so, what commands, or cmdlets should I be focusing on?
Any links to some other useful guides would be awesome.

Thanks in advance.

I think you can use WMI to check the configuration .

I am a Noob as well, WELL as far as THESE Forums go, & by that I mean command lines, Power Shell, Configs, I'm great with the PC Stuff & Parts Etc..But NOW IVE GOT ISSUES With my own 64bit Win 7 Professional Edition. Going to more than likely use my SSD With a 1TB HHD & use the Intel Smart Response Tech. the SSD is "Suppose" to act as only a Cache & A BOOST in speed is tremendous, so they say. but not ready to really do it yet, Trying to figure out WHY & WHAT ALL My issues are now in case it happens again!!!
