Thanks for the suggestions :

Why not trying to set some folders to compressed (right clik -
 properties - advanced options), specially folders like
 OpenOffice/basis/help or OpenOffice/basis/share, works transparent
 for the users. And sometimes is quicker than read from disk,

Setting up a compressed folder on netbook with already poor performances is
not really a good idea.  If I could, I would solve the problem by putting
them at the right place, in the trash ! :)

Have you tried to connect the netbook to an usb drive before the
and indicate this external DD as destination to decompress the installer
I did that for my vm XP which has only a 4 Go virtual hardrive and it
worked well.

For the suggestion about the temporary files on an external source, it's not
valid since I already decompressed the .exe into a network folder from which
I launch the msi installation by GPO.

Obviously I meant "You CAN'T remove Base"

I tried to launch manually the msi installer and followed the menus, I can
remove Base and Draw and other optional components.
What I would like to do is put those changes into an mst file so I can
deploy a lighter version of LibreOffice on those pieces of ±@££@!$!

God I hate those netbook :P

Objet : LibreOffice deployment on Windows

  I just deployed LibreOffice on about 2000 computers to replace  I found a problem for some crappy netbook Windows XP with
small hardrive...  Even if I clean them up, I don't have enough space to
install libreoffice ( is already uninstalled).

  I would like to know how to create an new mst to add my existing settings
and to remove base from the installation... maybe with a lighter
installation will pass...  I don't need to know how to create an mst, I just
want to know what to edit to remove base from the installation.  I can't
find where are the settings to do what I want to do in the property table.
