Copy the licensefile to your c:\flexlm directory and then simply run the application installer:

"c:\install\software\graphics\Autodesk Maya 2009\Windows-32\Maya\setup.exe"

Note
Create the deployment using the setup.exe from your extracted download files.
Using the admin image you create by doing this makes a "silent" install shortcut but it has a user interface and will present popups if there are errors.
You can use the undocumented/unsupported (at this time) commands from the AutoCad installation to install silently with no user interaction. See the Command Line section.

Command Line
Setup.exe /W /Q /I YOURFILENAME.ini /Lang en-US

Silent install suitable for SMS/SCCM. /W is the flag for SMS and SCCM, /Q is the silent install, /I indicates this is a deployment installation.

Note
Maya doesn't allow you to slipstream hotfix 4 into your deployment. You can add it as part of the deployment however, by following the instructions in the following article.

Command Line
Above entry by satnix is problematic: Autodesk calls the method outlined in the PDF a silent install, but it still presents a user interface and will send popup windows if there are any questions to the console. It's not truly a silent install.
If you are trying to deploy via SCCM/SMS this method is not sufficient, use the first entry.
