Ah, so your group is responsible for all the "I've found Python on my
computer, what does it do and can I remove it" messages we saw last year?
You are right about ActiveState, the copy you download from their web
site is licensed to prohibit redistribution. They might be prepared to
cut you a special license, but you'd have to ask them about that.
I'm guessing Mark Hammond would be able to build you a silent installer
for a modest price.
Off-topic, I'd be very interested to learn anything you could tell us
about why HP are installing Python (what it's used for, what you
experience has been, &c). If this could be made public it would be nice
to include it as a "Python success story".
