MSI Difficulties

I am trying to deploy Python onto a number of laptops, all running
Windows XP, and have been trying to take advantage of Python 2.4's MSI
installer. I have tried using the following commands to install, but to
no avail:

msiexec /i python-2.4.msi /qb ALLUSERS=1
-- and --
msiexec /i python-2.4.msi /qb ALLUSERS=1 ADDLOCAL=ALL

However both of these commands fail to update the Windows path to
include C:\Python24 and as such creates problems for me when trying to
actually use Python. How can I rectify this situation? Is there a
command I am missing? Do I need to manually update the Path, and if so,
is there a programatic way I can do this? Thanks in advance.
