Can you deploy Office 2003 with both group policy and local installation sources?

In your recent review of Office 2003, you implied that you can deploy Office 2003 with both group policy and local installation services. But when I went back and read the instructions I saw that you can't use the two together. Local installation sources require the setup.exe, which group policy won't use.
In all my overzealous excitement about local installation sources, I didn't make that clear in my comments. Where I see local installation sources benefiting you most is with disk-imaging techniques and for laptop computers. In both scenarios, you're not as likely to use Active Directory to deploy Office 2003.
