./ 2>&1 | tee ms-install.log

....usually works for me.

I guess you could build that into the install script by looking for a "-L 
logfile.txt" when the installer is called or something:

	# The full installation process

if [ $LOGOPT == "YES" ]; then
	install | tee $LOGFILE

Not pretty shell script, but it's 7am, I've been up since 3am and haven't had 
any coffee... ;)
