I need to install ONLY the client network utility for SQL Server 2005. Any suggestions as to which .cab file to use or a faster way to install this instead of starting the installation from the SQLTOOLS cd-2.

Thanks

Do not think so,  there is a command line and/or unattended mode, but the install CD is the easiest by far - just need to start with the second CD though - and if it doesn't auto start then browse to and click on "splash.html" and you should be fine from there - just make sure you select the options (might need to expand the selecitions) that you actually need / want.

Are you referring to the Microsoft SQL Server Native Client?

You can pull down the MSI and do a transform package for a silent install. Then put it on the network with a vbScript to load it.
