How to create a silent installation of Microsoft office 2010 Professional?

Hello:

I am looking for a way to install Microsoft Office 2010 ProPlus silently on the a PC.  In the past we have always just taken a couple of CD's and then manually installed/Upgraded Microsoft Office Applications going desk to desk.

It worked; but, I would like to find a more efficient way of updating our computers.  I tried out the instructions that I read in a technet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd630736 ; but, i was unsuccessful.

1.  I copied the instaltion files from a CD to a computer and shared the folder.

2.  I opened a command prompt and I typed(without quotes) "\\sal002570\Office2010\setup.exe /config \\sal002570\Office2010\ProPlus.WW\confix.xml"

3.  I did change the config.xml file to have the following commad: <Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="yes" AcceptEula="yes" />

4.  I tried this on a Windows 7 Professional PC.

5.  After I execute the command line above, I just see the PC trying do something (pausing/hourglass) for 2 seconds and then it quits.

If anyone has a better way of setting up a silent installation of Microsoft 2010, I would be willing to try it out.   Or another way of updating PC's besides manually clicking through an installation.
