Hi guys,

Objective i want to achieve:
produce a multi-platform installer (Windows 2000/XP/2003 Server/Vista and Linux) that installs Open Office and write to a .properties file the path folder where OpenOffice is installed.
for linux i want to use command line installer not GUI wizard !
the installer console or gui must give a wizard where user can choose to install or not OO and if he decides not to install OO the installer ask him about existing OO installation folder path, if he don't provide path or gives wrong one installations should fail.

i would appreciate a lot if some one helps me to write this feature in java or probably use some open source installers.

ps: i checked izpack : http://www.izforge.com/izpack/
it's good tool but don't know how to do above task with izpack .if some one is knowledgeable with izpack i would appreciate some help

your help is very appreciated for this URGENT task !

thanks a lot.

othman.
