I am in the process of getting things setup to deploy the CRM 2011 Outlook Client via group policy.  I understand I need to create the msi then I and put that in a target directory in order to deploy.  I have a few questions around all of this as I have not deployed many programs out ot machines let alone with group policy.

What is the best way to create the msi in order for it to run in the background.  Do I just run the setupclient.exe with the /A and /Q triggers?

We have a handful of users with the client installed already so how can I decipher if it is already installed and exclude those from getting installed?

If I have a mixture of 64bit and 32bit OS's how can I decipher which are which to install the appropriate one for that machine?

Once I get hese items addressed I should be on my way.
