most GUI installs either use MSI which accepts various flags for 
settings, or the GUI installer itself secretly accepts flags for 
settings.  a lot of times if you do GUI-Install-Program /? you will get 
a list of flags it accepts, or there is a website that details many 
hidden settings.  http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/

thats cool that you have a CD that installs everything you need, too bad 
I can't do that at my work, we have a dozen different kind of computers, 
a lot of people using different kinds of software, etc.  WPKG helps a 
lot with that though.
