    Chester:

    Follow these instructions from the Help File:

    Create an administrative installation location
    Place the MapPoint Setup disc in your disc drive.
    Open a command prompt window, and enter:
    msiexec /a X:\msmap\data.msi
    where X is your disc drive location.

    The Administrative Installation Wizard starts.

    Click Next.
    Choose a network location for the administrative installation location, for example, \\machine\share\MapPoint\.
    Follow the Administrative Installation Wizard on-screen instructions.
    When you are finished creating the administrative installation location, users can install MapPoint either through an advertisement or by browsing to the location and double-clicking setup.exe.

    That should do it.. let us know if you have further problems.

    If your trying to install it from your HD forget about it. You have to burn it to a CD then install it.

    Check the knowledge base. It is something specific like Geo90NA or Geo90EU.

    hehe. Yeah I don't know how common this is.. I found in the MSDN download instructions:

    "Note: if you create your own CD-R, ensure the volume label is GEO9NA."

    the equivalent for the European version would be GEO9EU.
