Silent deployment of SAP on 1000+ workstations

We need to deploy SAP 6.20 to approx 1000 workstations. We use Tivoli to distribute software to these workstations. I would like Tivoli to push SAP 6.20 and a command file to each workstation. Is there any way to run the SAP installation silently (i.e. no pop up boxes)? Any other suggestions on large deployment best practises would be very appreciated.

SAPGUI 6.20 can be deployed in silent mode. You can create installation packages according to your needs. The installation can be done through logon scripts or manually. The users do not need to have local admin privileges if you set up a FrontEnd Server Installation. Take a look at the documentation that comes with SAPGUI 6.20.
