Setup Manager is not installed by default with a Windows 2000 installation, but it is found, along with some other tools, in Deploy.cab on your Windows 2000 Server installation CD-ROM. To install Setup Manager, you need to create a folder where the cabinet files can be extracted. You might simply want to create a Deployment folder for this purpose. Once you have created a folder, just follow these steps: 1. Insert your Windows 2000 Server installation CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive and then choose the Browse This CD option from the menu that appears. 2. Open the Support folder and then open the Tools folder. 3. Right-click Deploy.cab and click Explore. The files in Deploy.cab appear in an Explorer window, shown in Figure E-17.

6. Select the platform the answer file installs. You can choose either Windows 2000 Professional or Server. Make your selection and then click Next. 7. The User Interaction Level window appears, shown in Figure E-21. In this window, you select the amount of interaction the user or administrator must perform during the installation. You have the following options: Provide defaults The answer file provides the default setup answers, and the user has to accept the defaults or make changes. Fully automated The user has no interaction with setup. All of the answers are provided in the answer file, and the user cannot intervene and make changes. Hide pages Typical setup pages, where the user ordinarily provides information, are hidden if they are answered in the answer file. Those pages that are not answered appear to the user to answer. This feature allows you to automate some portions of setup but collect specific information from the user as necessary. Read only In Read-only mode, the pages are presented to the user, but the user cannot make any changes to the pages. GUI attended The GUI attended option automates only the textbased portion of setup. The graphical phase of setup functions like a normal install where the user enters setup information. Make your selection by clicking the appropriate radio button and then click Next.

8. Enter the default name and organization and then click Next. 9. Depending on whether you selected the Server or Professional option, the next several windows ask you the same questions you would see during a Server or Professional installation. Answer the questions as desired, keeping in mind these will be the default answers provided during installation. 10. Once you have responded to the answer file questions, Setup Manager needs to know whether you will create a distribution folder for the setup files or whether you will use the CD to run the installs. Typically, you will want to use a distribution folder for the over-the-network installations. This option keeps all of your files, drivers, and other setup information in one location. If you want to create the folder, click the Yes radio button. If you do not want to create the folder, click No. Then click Next. 11. The Distribution Folder window, shown in Figure E-22, allows you to either create a new distribution folder or modify an existing one. By default, new distribution folders are named win2000dist and shared with the same name. Make your selection and then click Next.
