The autocad installers are MSI based, so you should be able to get a silent install by adding /qn to the msiexec command line.
HOWEVER, older versions of Autocad installed a number of pre-requisites during the user interface part of the install, without which Autocad would not run. In a silent install, these pre-reqs did not get installed, so you needed to install them separately. For the version of Autocad I packaged for silent installation a few years ago, the final installation had seven consecutive installs. I believe Autocad LT has pretty much the same installation structure but at the moment I'm not getting access to the trial download to see whether it has changed.
If you have MSI skills in how, look in the Execute UI sequence for custom actions that run installers on the CD. If I recall correctly, these included things like DirectX and VIsual C++ runtimes, and of course these may be different depending on whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit install.
Frankly, unless you are intending to deploy to more than 5-10 users, a manual installation is going to be much faster than trying to package and deploy remotely - unless of course the installers have changed a lot in recent releases.
