Automated installation programs for Notes

Other than Install Pump, are there any other automated installation programs for notes 4.6-5? Also, have Lotus themselves produced a migration tool or in process of doing so? Microsoft and Novell, plus many others, provide migration tools but Lotus doesn't provide anything. The problem with Install Pump is that it is only worth while if you have thousands of users and live in the US to gain worth while support.

I don't know of any others. Lotus is working on a better upgrade utility for Rnext. There is an upgrade utility inside the Address Book for R5, but it doesn't work well without you having a package for it to call. You can point it to the base Notes code installer, but all it does is shut down the client and send your people into the install program. They would then have to choose all of the install options. If these aren't savvy users, you'll have problems.
