I am trying to distribute a package called Sphinx which has 4 dependencies:

Sphinx
|- JRE 1.4.2
|- Oracle 9i
|- ODIS
|- TABE

The problem is that none of the dependencies depend on one another and as far as I know you can only specify one dependency in SMS.

Does anybody know a way around this one?

Surely there is a solution, I would normally link the programs in a chain but then I would have forced dependencies on programs that are not really dependent on one another.

I considered just using a batch file to install the MSI packages but then I am not able to reboot between installations and also have no reliable method of returning successes / failures to SMS.

I find it difficult to believe that it is not possible to specify multiple dependencies in SMS 2003.

There just has to be a way to do this. Somebody must have a way.

If data redundancy doesn't concern you, you could always create duplicate packages for the dependent apps you mentioned, and chain the dependancies on those.
