Note
1) Create an admin install of Corel.
2) Apply SP2 to admin install.

Then modify Corel msi in admin install:
3) Add Property table value "ISSETUPDRIVEN" and set the value to 1.
4) In the "Property" table set "ALLUSERS" to 2.
5) Remove "OnCheckSilentInstall" from the "InstallExecuteSequence" table.
6) Copy DR11.dta (from a PC with Corel installed and registered) into the admin install. File goes in \Program Files\Corel\Corel Graphics 11\Programs7) Ensure that the msi will install DR11.dta. I did this using WPS -> Windows Install Editor. Had to ensure that the instruction to remove the file on install is removed also.
8) In the Components Table find "CommonPrograms"
and add "DR11.DTA" to "KeyPath".
9) In the File Table, add a row with the following Values:
File:DR11.DTA
Component:CommonPrograms
FileName:DR11.DTA
FileSize:104
Attributes:8192
Sequence:1834
10) In the Directory tablefind "CorelDRAW11_Folder"
and change "DefaultDir" to
"Corel~1|Corel Graphics Suite 11".

Now deploy using a GPO. Ensure that ISScript.msi is installed prior to CorelDraw.

Note
Changing Corel Suite 11, so it can be installed by GPO.
1. Generate an administrative Installation (setup /a) to
generate an distribution point on a server.
2. apply service packs 1 + 2.
3. Go to http://www.palmOne.com/us/support/
downloads/windesk41SE_legal.html and download the
Palm Desktop Software 4.1! (We need a component out
of this installation to update Corel!)
4. Begin the installation of the Palm Desktop Software 4.1
and when asked, give it place to store its Files. Wait
for the Welcome Message and the first "Next >" Button.
Now go to place you gave for storing and copy the
file "Palm Desktop.msi" to your own location.
5. Start Orca and load "Palm Desktop.msi"
6. In Orca go to the Binary table and double click on
[Binary Data] behind ISScriptBridge.dll, save it to
ISScriptBridge.dll.
7. Load Corel Graphics Suite 11.msi to Orca.
8. In the Property table set ISSETUPDRIVEN to 1.
9. In the Property table set ALLUSERS to 2.
10. Go to the Binary table and double click on
[Binary Data] behind ISScriptBridge.dll, load
ISScriptBridge.dll from Palm Desktop.
11. In the Binary table, delete the row which begins
with "ISRT.dll" (this becomes obsolete with the new
ISScriptBridge.dll).
12. In the Menu Tranform, choose "New Transform".
13. In the Directory table, search for "CorelDRAW11_Folder"
and change "DefaultDir" to
"Corel~1|Corel Graphics Suite 11".
14. In the Components Table, search for "CommonPrograms"
and add "DR11.DTA" to "KeyPath".
15. In the File Table, add a row with the following Values:
File:DR11.DTA
Component:CommonPrograms
FileName:DR11.DTA
FileSize:104
Attributes:8192
Sequence:1834
16. In the Property table, add the Item "InstallMode" with
the Value "Complete".
17. In the Property table, add the Item "INSTALLLEVEL" with
the Value "3".
18. In the Property table, add the Item "ProductID" with
the Value "none".
19. In the Feature table, search for "Draw11Suite", set
Level to 3 and Attributes to 0.
20. If you need to install something from the
"Writing Tools", search for "WritingTools",
set Level to 3 and Attributes to 2.
21. Now you can switch of the features you don't need.
On everything you need, let the Level Value be on 1,
to switch one off, set the Level to 0.
22. Save the Transform with "Menu Tranform",
"Generate Transform...".
23. So far, applying the changes with the transform,
doesn't work on my Server. Therefore, i apply the
transform to "Corel Graphics Suite 11.msi" and save
the result with File¦Save transformed As... to a
new file. That's it!
24. To install the Package, make sure that IsScript.msi
is already installed (via GPO or by Hand).

This was tested with GPO-install with
"advanced published and assigned" on a w2k-server.
(Figuring out this process was supported with vital information from Curtis Sawin, thanks.).

Note
Once you install Corel Draw 11 and enter the serial key.

The Serial Key is stored in

C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel Graphics 11\Programs

copy the DR11.dta file and modify your Corel Graphics Suite 11.msi to include the above file that way you don''t have to enter the key on next install.
