Have you considered contacting ActiveState?  Their installers generally
work very nicely for me, and I like to recommend them to people who want
a turn-key install.  I suspect you could talk them into some special
deal to redistribute the installer as an academic institution, but at
the very least your students could download their installer themselves
for the economical price of $0.00.
