I'm trying to push Acrobat Reader 7.0 through group policy and I've got the MSI file that can be accessed  by the network on a shared folder where other GPOs are being pulled from but for some reason I'm gettting a error code 1612.  I've performed an administrative installation to the folder I'm pushing the MSI from.  Does anybody have any insight as to why the client workstations are seeing the policy, attempting to install on startup but doesn't because of that error code 1612.  Please help!  Thanks in advance.

1612 is an unavailable installation source. If you're distributing this in a computer GPO, make sure the *computer* accounts have read access to the share; either add "Domain Computers" to the security of the share, or add the accounts to a group that has access.

Also when you set up a GPO to install something you need to use the network path to the msi file.  I know many of the people I work with have made the mistake of using the local path (c:\folder\msi) and this will not work.  Check the path in your GPO.

Sorry about not responding back to this question any sooner.  I've been really busy doing a 2003 server upgrade.  Thanks for your inputs but I'm afraid all it was was a W2k issue where it just wasn't pushing it for whatever reason.  It finally decided to push out so I awarded you each half the points.  Thanks again.
