>> Can you elaborate on how you do this? <<

Sure. I stored the service pack in a public directory on the file
server, and created a shortcut on my disktop that points to the
setup.exe file. A shortcut is just a file in the c:\windows\desktop
directory (or c:\windows\profiles\username\desktop if you use Windows
user profiles - NT uses a similar scheme). Its name is the text that
appears below the shortcut with ".lnk" appended on to it. I attached the
.lnk file to an email document (we use GroupWise). The text of the
document consisted of instructions on how to shut down CA, save the file
to the user's desktop, double click to execute and then delete it. I
have a GroupWise distribution list that contains the addresses of all of
the 32 bit CA users, so it was pretty painless.
