I don't quite get your problem...

I don't see what the OS, or hardware has to do with the installation of compiled binaries on a system where you only have to say where to put the files and to add icons to programgroups and desktops.

Sure, I have to cope with different windowmanagers like KDE, Gnome and Win32, but that's something I can live with.

If you know what Installshield does, you know that is's just a shell around a 'copy the files to the right directory'...well, OK, a bit more than that, but basically it has nothing to do with the OS and not at all with hardware...

    Well the right places for the files varies from system to system. u may wanit it to put in /usr/bin /bin /usr/local/bin /some/place/else same goes for libraries and all other stuff. Each distribution handles this sort different
