    Basically look through the different methods of deployment and pick the one that best fits your environment.

    You'd also want to use the Office Customization Tool for creating a setup file.

    Thanks for the info.  This may help.  I just realized the Office 2007 packages are already in .msi format so I should be able to use Group Policy - thanks
