One of my old clients did something similar with their licensing
agreement. Instead of placing the licensing agreement in the shrink-wrap
with the diskettes, they thought they could save some money by just
placing it in the installation script. Of course, the licensing
agreement said something along the lines of: "By opening this package,
you agree to the terms described herein." You could never see the
licensing agreement without opening the package and by then, it was too
late. <g>
