Want to avoid users having to enter username and initials in Office 2003 startup

Hello,

I am updating our users to Office 2003....as with previous version of Office, when the user opens the first Office 2003 application for the first time, they are presented with a message box asking them to enter their name and initials.  I typically perform the first logon for the user and enter our site name and blank out the initials.  I am wondering if there is any way to pre-set these values so that the message box does not appear.
Please advise.  Thanks.

Yes, create a sharepoint and have the users install the app from the sharepoint.  They won't be prompted for any serial key or the such.

Use this link for ful details.

I created an administrative sharepoint with the options I wanted. In reading the documentation, I did not see a way to apply the Office 2003 SP1 updates or other updates into this sharepoint.  Any ideas?  Was looking at chaining?

Thanks.
