youre probably missing

setupAdminUser  stanza in your response file

(Sep 21, 2010 11:55:17 AM), Process, com.ibm.ws.install.ihs.ismp.actions.ISMPWarningDialogAction, wrn, setupAdminUser input field requires you to enter text.

here's an example for complete response, for AIX (but doesn't differ for linux)

-OPT silentInstallLicenseAcceptance="true"
-OPT allowNonRootSilentInstall="true"
-OPT disableOSPrereqChecking="true"
-OPT installLocation="/usr/IBM/HTTPServer"
-OPT installGSKit="true"
-OPT httpPort="80"
-OPT adminPort="8008"
-OPT createAdminAuth="true"
-OPT adminAuthUser="ihsadmin"
-OPT adminAuthPassword="******"
-OPT adminAuthPasswordConfirm="******"
-OPT runSetupAdmin="true"
-OPT createAdminUserGroup="false"
-OPT setupAdminUser="ihsadmin"
-OPT setupAdminGroup="ihsadmin"
-OPT installPlugin="true" --optional--
-OPT webserverDefinition="<plugin instance config name>" --optional--
-OPT washostname="<was dmgr host you want to manage your IHS from>" --optional--


hope it helps

Turns out I had an OS problem. The default temp directory needed to be explicitly set. Once I did that, the install went fine. Thanks so much for responding. :)
