Installing software on a remote PC with no disk drive

How do I install software on a remote PC that has no floppy or CD-ROM drive and connects to our main office with Terminal Server?
Well, you don't do it via Terminal Services . Theoretically, I suppose that it would be possible (I have not tried this) if your display protocol supported client drive mapping, which means Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services or MetaFrame 1.8 or later. But generally I'd suggest doing a network install of the software.
