Publishing MS Office 2003

I am having problems Publishing Office 2003 across our 2003 Server network.

I created a network drive and mapped it to the Office PRO11.msi file that is stored on the C:Drive. Created a GP in the individual OUs for Office and Published the package, but no user can access the Published package. For the Deployment options I have left it at the default settings of, "Auto-install the application by file extension activation"

I have also tried to Assigned option with the same results. I chose the deployment options as "Install this application at logon".

All PCs can ping the server and visa versa, DHCP is configured.

Any suggestions as to where I have gone wrong if I have, would be gratefully received.

the order of file name extensions specified for the GPO and ensure that the file name extension is associated with MS Office?

Sorry FE, you have lost me. I thought that I that was needed was the .msi file to enable distribution of Office?

Sorry FE, that sounds double dutch.

What I meant to say was: "all I thought that I needed was the .msi file to deploy office".
