Where did you get the package from?  I have run into cases where the package just was not intended for a network install.  This may be your case.

I got the package from my temp files when installing the newest download off apple.com.

Any suggestions?

I just did the same as you did, though I didnt get that data1.cab error, it still did not install the way it should.  In these cases, I have just dumped the actual msi on the network and ran it with "msiexec /i quicktime.msi /quiet" in a batch file just as it is from the clients.

How does "msiexec /i quicktime.msi /quiet" no where to look? Could you explain the batch file....?

You can path to the msi like "msiexec /i \\server\share\quicktime.msi /quiet".  Since everything is contained in the one file, it should work just fine.  In my experience, I have added the command into the login scripts run by the users.  How you do it is really up to you.
