Installing Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch on OS X using ARD Apple Remote Desktop error

It's a long story, but I'll cut it short. Anyhow, I have 12 x Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch model number CTH-470 and they need installing on all Mac Computers. No problem, except the installer looks like an .app file. If you view the package contents you find a couple of pkg files. The most important is the "Install Bamboo.pkg".

Running this installer locally installs the tablet minus the dock (I don't think it's important). So, next thing is to try via Apple Remote Desktop (ARD). This ends up coming up with an error:

"Install Bamboo.pkg" could not be installed. Error message: "running package scripts..."

Well, just like the last time I tried to install Wacom tablets through ARD, turns out this error message isn't really an error message. After a reboot the tablet works like a dream on the computer.

Hope this helps someone.
