I think instead of wasting time on creating a transform file (too bad AD 
does not let you specify MSI parameters) you can just run a AD script:

cscript \\path\to\wpkg.js /install:wpkg

Easy enough.

But from the error output, I am not so sure about that. I was educated to report only the exact information, which is manifesting the bug, without any hypotehsis of my own, in case if I am not developer intimate with the inner workings of the software. I think this would be wise.

That you use Windows 2000 (what service pack?), and using "machine 
account" does not let you use WPKG Client with AD.
