Michael, your approach is the best for keeping a large number users happy.
More work for you up front, but simplest for the rest of the team and
therefore less time spent supporting them in installing the product.

I've seen others posts about problems and slow downloads using either
Download Director or http with either IE or Chrome. I've had no troubles
and fairly decent download times using Firefox and Download Director.
Being rather rural, we've got pretty limited bandwidth so I always
download the zips and set up a local repository. If fixpacks come out, I
use the Packaging Utility to merge them for future installs. Everyone's IM
then points to our local repository and update from there. It seems to
work pretty well. The only caveat is I have to keep everything up to date
in the repository, but that's got more folks using RDi. I don't know what
I would do if I had to go back to SEU.

I just did the installation from the Web that Eric pointed out - it took
very little time - like 10 or 15 minutes - compare that to really long
download times that others are reporting and that I've seen before.
I'm almost ready to suggest that we use the web install with IM!
