If you are there while it's installing and if you burned the file on the CD...Shift+F10 and then you should be able to run your batch file.

Just keep in mind that either this way, or in the way suggested by dunnpy the system may not have been completely finished installing and default setting may revert items you change with your script.

It's not an ideal thing to do for a corporate environment, because application versions change as often as I change my socks - but it is possible to do.

Take a look at this website:http://unattended.msfn.org/unattended.xp/view/web/1/

It's geared more towards home-users who want to automate the setup of their machines,  if you are in a corporate environment then there really are better methods of installing software automatically.
