Get the setup.exe. Run it and look in the TEMP folder for the MSI. Once you have the MSI, double check that you dont need ISS (installshield script engine), if you need ISS it will be unpacked in the temp folder somewhere.

Once you have the MSI try installing it, it should moan that its not running from the setup - at this point you need to make a transform or just pass the parmater via cmd line.
Look here for more info: http://www.itninja.com/question/issetupdriven-1

So in the end if you do it via cmd line and not a transform it might look like this:
msiexec /i blah.msi ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 /qb /l*vx .\blah.log

You might need to faff a bit more if you need to add settings/config data, check out the properties, you should be able to shove it into them - use InstEd to look at msi properties (when i mean property i dont mean file properties).
