I trying to make a Cd with all of my important programs on it and would like to know how to automate the setup so I don't have to put in the CD-Key for win98 Oem version.  I would also like to do this with Adobe Photoshop 4.0.  I know this is posible I just don't know what files have to be created or edited

Thanks
