I have taken a different approach to solving this problem: Don't make
the user install anything.

I created a CD with several collections and an Apache web server. When
the user inserts the CD, it starts Apache and IE, then loads the first
page of Greenstone from the CD. When the user closes IE, Apache is shut
down automatically.

This approach has significantly reduced the number of end-user CD problems.
