I did the /a administrative install straight from the CD. From Run... on the start menu: D:\Setup_ST.exe /a Then I just went through the install as per normal, it asks you to insert the Run Disc, I did that, and everything you need is in the folder you specify during the administrative install. Then I just played around with the Setup_ST.ini file that's in the folder specified in the administrative install. The pertinent points in mine to get a silent install that runs completely from the hard drive look like this: [Options] USERNAME=Your Name RUNTIME=FALSE [Display] Display=None CompletionNotice=No I'm pretty sure that the RUNTIME=False is what gets you to get the entire installation on the hard drive. If you open up the Setup_ST.ini, each section is explained fairly well, just make sure you remove the ; prefixing any comments you edit and want to keep. Another thing you might try doing is using the Cutom Installation Wizard of the Microsoft Office ORK to make a transfrom. I tried it and it seemed to work. However, the ORK tells you that you may not get the proper reults considering that it's not Office. The only reason I tried in the first place is because i tried a /? switch on the Setup_ST.exe and it told me to go to to the Office ORK page for support on command line parameters. In any case, the first method works like a charm.
