Can the Apache Tomcat 5.028 installation package run silently?

Hello all,

Have been trying to trip down the number of steps it takes for us to install and configure a number of our webservers, and I've been looking for a way to wrap up the Tomcat installer in a silent install, but haven't seen anything on exactly how to do that.

Does this ability exist? If so, anyone with some tips/tutorials on how to do it?

Any assistance would be helpful, I'm trying to get this done asap.

    I believe you can do a silent install by using the option /S on a command-line call to the installer program.

    Thanks, sleep_furiously, I'm going to try that.

    Do you know if I can send any other command line parameters (ex. location of where Tomcat would be installed, default port, etc.)?

    Well, I guess finding out other command-line parameters will be another question altogether.

    The /S option works fine for a silent install, thanks!
