You splattered the nail with this post...!  Especially item 3) which, IMV,
applies to ALL package installs, not just LODRUN.

| Brad,
| 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.
