SCCM Adobe Reader 9.2 Deployment

I simply wanna know how to mass deploy Adobe Reader 9.2 to computer on my network. They have various version installed on their computers today, some might even have the latest version 10 or something. I wanna know step by step on how to do this job. Some users have limited rights on the computer. I know ill have to use the Customization wizard from Adobe but i realy need a step by step guide, please help. Thanks. All the computers have Windows xp installed. Thanks in advance.

Just for information, iv tried deploying it on the test computer whole day, with various errors, so i wanna start from scrath to get everything done properly.

If you want a Step by Step Deployment you can follow this: http://www.404techsupport.com/2009/06/26/how-to-apply-patches-msp-to-group-policy-deployed-software-msi/
This describe how to deploy Adobe Reader using GPO. It works perfectly for any Adobe Reader version.

Or you can download the AdobeReader.exe file and run this command:

<path to>\AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe -nos_o"Reader9" -nos_ne

Change <path to> to your drive
Change "AdbeRdr90_en_US.exe" to your file name

This command will extract the msi file to "Reader9" folder. Follow this (http://www.404techsupport.com/2010/04/13/using-group-policy-to-deploy-adobe-acrobat-9-3-2/2/) to setup GPO.

I dont wanna use GPO for this update, i would rather like to use SCCM. I know that you can extract the exe file with command provided above, but it extracts msi files which is 4-5mb. Along with this it has a data.cab file, how am i suppose to dploye that thru SCCM, when in SCCM you provide 1 file with everything in it.

OK. I have solved this matter myself. For people who  might need help with that, here`s what i did:

Made new Package and then new program. Command line i used in the new program was the following: AdbeRdr920_nb_NO.exe /sAll  (/sAll for silent installation). This would automatically uninstall all previous version and stop the installation if target computer have later version then 9.2. I did not use any program to modify the exe or made any MSI file, i simply used the exe file downloded from Adobes website without modifying it at all.
Remember to provide path of the exe file in "Start in" right underneath where u have the command line.
