Are there any other "response file" type setup options besides SILENT install?

I have successfully called the Sybase Setup via the Silent Install option,
and it is truly silent - ie. there is no activity on the screen whatsoever
until
it completes. I was asked if I could run in a mode that takes the responses
from a a file so the user does not have to interact with the installation,
but will still display the billboards and such, so the user knows there
system
isn't hung and that it is in fact still in the process of the installation.

The documentation only mentions silent installation as an option.
Is there other options that aren't documented that would take a response
file but still display the billboards?

Thanks,

If you need more control over the install, you can implement your own
install. There are a variety of templates and projects for InstallShield
provided to give you install a starting point. The documentation also covers
the deployment of individual components and files if you wish to implement
your install from scratch or are using an install tool that is not
InstallShield.
