Distributing the JRE

I am making an Applet for my companies intranet. I have the JRE.exe on my web server and the Applet Code in the HTML will pick up whether or not they have it installed on the PC and it will prompt them to install it.
I was wondering if there were some arguments that could be appened to the executable that would get rid of the setup wizard that loads and just installs the JRE in a pre-determined location with out any user intervention other than accepting the trust policy at the beginning.
Thanks

Well, 15 minutes after I posted this, I found the solution at http://java.sun.com
I am at home right now and don't have the exact URL but tomorrow I will edit this post and add it here in case anyone else needs to find it.

Well, there is some information on making the implementation silent or not silent here.
Gregg, you are aware, that just having a JRE and setting the classpath will not trigger a browser to use it - yes? Browsers have their own internal parameters that point to the JRE that they will use. In windows the registry has a place for the browser classpath and such stuff. Of course the plug-in wizard sets such things.
Just wanted to make sure that you looked into that.

Yes, I am aware of that. I've got that taken care of.
Thanks Cindy.
