Sometimes the silent setup will not run, becaus of pending file operations. in this case you can temporarily rename the pendingfileoperations key in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations before installing. After installation COPY the key back to the original name.
There is also a SMS package Defintion File in the Disk1 Directory off the CD. Although it was orignially intended for SMS 2.0 it can still be used with SMS 2003
The PDF file used included on CD1 does not work with SMS 2003. In addition Microsoft has confirmed that you cannot use Enterprise Media for a silent unattended install. You must use Developer Edition Media. This install fails due to the fact MDAC creates pending file operations.
