I have no problem with LODRUN; see below for some ideas that would make
me feel even better about a vendor install.

I would assume that for must distributions, the vendor will supply some
sort of installation program or will document a series of commands to be
executed in their documentation.  In this case you could provide your
customers with three choices without any additional technical work but
with some additional documentation.

1)  Use LODRUN

2)  Restore program QINSTAPP from the installation media and issue a
call to it.  This would be the same thing as LODRUN but might make some
people happier.

3)  Document the installation program, provide source code, and allow
the customer to execute it on a command-by-command basis.  Assuming that
you have no intellectual property concerns about your installation
program, this might give folks a warm and fuzzy feeling and encourage
them to use options 1 or 2 above.
