Update existing OFFICE 2003 installation with additional feature

What would be the best way to update existing Office 2003 installations with a feature that was not already installed.
Update the MST files (generated with ORK Tools), and trigger a repair on the pc's?
Or is there another way to do this?

Update the MST files (generated with ORK Tools), and trigger a repair your MCSA turtor would tell you there are NO other way - The Microsoft way or NO way ;-)

The Office 2003 MSI is chock full of custom actions that will likely be broken using standard MSI editing tools. The first one to break is usually the licensing stuff. Thanks to MS for severely bending their MSI standards, Office is "special". Use the Custom Installation Wizard in the resource kit.

I believe to apply a new transform you'll need to reinstall as well.

Can anyone confirm this for me?
