I've discovered some more commandline switches for the SunJava msi.
Full description of available switches:

IEXPLORER=1 (default=0)
This selects the IE plugin

MOZILLA=1 (default=0)
This selects the Netscape/Mozilla plugin

JAVAUPDATE=0 (default=1)
This turns off JavaUpdate (partial)

JU=0 (default=1)
This is a new property in Update 5 and 6 which also needs
to be set even though JAVAUPDATE=0 was used

AUTOUPDATECHECK=0 (default=1)
This turns off part of the AutoUpdate feature

SYSTRAY=0 (default=1)
This turns off the system tray icon when java applets run

WEBSTARTICON=0 (default=1)
This disables the creation of the web start link on the desktop

Those switches are documented on Sun's website and have been around since the 1.4 (and I think earlier) days. I already have a set of switches I use ;)

and my installer is up now

@Ryan

For the next release can you point the install folder to %WINDOWS% instead of C:\Windows...?

When using your installer for Win2k it creates a Windows folder and should be using the WINNT folder

I'll see if I can hack the MSI installer, but that's not of my doing directly
