Python Windows installation

does anyone know how I can automate installation of the Windows Python
distribution, using python1.5.1.msi ?

I want to be able to run the installation without user interaction, and
pass default parameters (instead of user entries), during the
installation process. This can be done with other .msi packages and I
was wondering if anyone has done this for the python setup package.

Hi!
1.5.1
Sure? 1.5.1?

For Python 2.5, look ActiveState. Their distrib have silent option.

See

then follow the link "automated installation" to

It can be done with *any* MSI package, and always in the same manner.
