Installing rosetta from a script

Hi,

I need to be able to install the rosetta component in Snow Leopard from a script file. We have a management tool that allows us to run scripts on our macbooks. We need to install a new piece of software across the company and this software requires rosetta to be installed. Some of the older macbooks are fine but the newer ones need to have it installed.

We can detect whether it's there or not but for love nor money I can't find out how to install it from the terminal or a script.

I've tried;

installer -pkg /path/to/Optional\ Installs.mpkg -target /

which says that it is installed but looking at it none of the components there have actually been installed.

There must be a way to tell the installer which features within the Optional Installs package need to be installed.

Any ideas?

Are your Macs on the internet? My recollection is that if you try to run an app. that requires Rosetta on a computer that does not have it, the Mac will automatically download and install Rosetta from Software Updates.

Only on a GUI app and it's not silent or automated. Imbeds to be installed from a script
