With version 8.2, documentation is included for use of AUTOSETUP.EXE which will utilize an answer file to automate the workstation installation.
The AUTOSETUP process provided by v8.2 requires at least one autologon to take place- if you have a security banner enforced by group policy, it will need to be disabled to allow for the autologon to succeed.
