I'm trying to install Office 2003 on a network computer that will be used by several different users with their own accounts. Everything works fine except everytime a new user logs on to the computer and opens Office it has to go through the whole "Microsoft is configuring Office ..." the first time they use it. I know there is a way to install Office so it doesn't have to configure it for every user but I can't figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Note Only editions of Office 2003 acquired through a Volume License agreement or other non-retail channel allow you to create an administrative installation point. You cannot run Setup.exe in administrative mode (/a) with an Office 2003 retail edition.
So unless you have that edition (you didn't say what edition you have), it can't be done (legally).
