I am trying to do an administrative install of office 2010.  I have set up the MSP and got the install to work, however after some testing find 2 questions being asked after launching any of the components to office 2010.  The first is: would you like to active online now?  The second is: what update scheme would you like to use?  (Recomended, ..., None)  The real problem is that we don't want these updates installed until all is tested and they are a known solution in conjunction with the other software we work with.  Even bigger is the problem that each user gets asked this question and most would probably select the recomended.  I need a way to set these ansewers before launching the application or disable the questions all together.  Windows XP PC on domain.(Yes group policy is an option)

I had the same issue. I used GPO to solve it but I don't recall which registry keys I configured.
However, on the top of my head I'm pretty sure I found the setting in the ADM files for Office 2010

Direct download link to Office 2010 Administrative Template files (ADM, ADMX/ADML) and Office Customization Tool:
