How to stop Office 2010 auto install

Good Afternoon

I am planning an deployment of the Office 2010 suite and would like to know a quick and easy way to stop the auto install after the software has been installed.   Is there a way to terminate the install after it senses that the software is already installed?

Any thoughts?

If you deploy in this manner it will not try to deploy a second time.

I  put a bat file together to scan for Office 14 file structure and it did the trick.

I was able to create a bat file that searches for the Office 14 structure and stop the install process.
