Office 2010 Pro Plus Deployment through SCCM 2007 R2

I am looking at a way of copying the install files onto a few hundred laptops when they are being migrated to our new domain and then kick starting the install once they are connected to the network at a later stage.

The end-users bring their laptops into our office for a couple of hours to do the migration and hence we will only have time to copy the Office 2010 install files during this time after the migration is done.

Then at a later stage when the users are connected to the network either directly or through VPN we want to start the Office 2010 Pro Plus install remotely.

Has anyone done this or know of a way to do this?

Take a look in the ProPlus.ww folder.  you will see a config.xml file that you can edit with install options.  One of the options allows you to CacheOnly which will cache the install files to the hidden c:\MSOCache folder.  Then when you are ready, you can call the installation from that location.
