Hmm.  Since this method of installation only requires the files to be copied
to a directory on the machine and for registry settings to be
installed....does anyone know of any software that can remotly add things to
registries?
For instance, I'm sat here in our admin office, and out on the network is a
machine named NFUTEST.  Assuming NFUTEST is switched on (logged on, even,
but not as administartor), and I'm logged on to the domain as administartor,
is there any program that can add things to the registry of NFUTEST from
where I'm sitting?

This is not technically VNC related, but if it exists, itd help with
installing VNC remotely.
