I'm creating msi packages to deploy through group policy. How do I set the folder permissions on my shared folder so that the msi packages will still install when published, but when the user browses to the folder will not be able to copy and paste my software?

If they are installed by the machine on startup, you could try sharing out the folder with "Domain Computers" having read access and no share permissions for domain users.

I want the domain users to be able to install it when they're logged in. I don't want them to be able to browse through my network places and copy it off to their flash drive. Is that possible?

No. If they have read permissions, they can copy the files. If you are using Group Policy to push out the software to the computers, users would not need permissions as it is the computer account that accesses the share.
If you are using login scripts (which are user-based) users would need permission.
