Create administrative installation point from client PC only?

I am looking to create an administrative installation point for Outlook 2003 on my server so that I can distribute it to the client PCs.  The Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit says:

     1.  Create a share on a network server for the administrative installation point. The network share must have at least 650
     megabytes (MB) of available hard-disk space.
-->2. On a computer that has write access to the share, <--  connect to the server share. The computer must be running a
     supported operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000 or later, Microsoft Windows NT® 4.0 Service Pack 6a, Microsoft
     Windows Millennium Edition (Windows Me), or Microsoft Windows 98.
     3. On the Start menu, click Run, and then click Browse.
     4. On the Office XP CD, double-click setup.exe and add /a to the command line.

Which brings me to my question... Do I HAVE TO be on a client computer to create the administrative installation point or can I run "Setup.exe /a" on the server itself?  Help?

Thanks!

You can do it on the server itself.   So long as you use the /a switch, the install will install files in such a way that you can install from it.  Then share the folder to which you installed and you are good to go.

Install to folder, then when you install on the clients all paths etc will be set.
