As a (cheap and lazy) alternative to the IEAK you can download the ie5setup
stub from Microsoft (or any download mirror site). Run it, then choose
Custom setup and hit next. Then change the setup to Full (instead of
Minimal, this way all files are downloaded). Then, hit the Advanced button
and you will notice a Download Only check box. Check that, hit Ok, and
continue the wizard normally from there.

From that point you will have the IE5.x setup files on your hard drive.
Share them on the network and have people run ie5setup.exe that way. Note
that you may have to do the above once for each OS as the files it downloads
are different.
