Hi Guys

You are also going need to create and populate the database. Copying  
files is the easy bit, the tricky bits the installer does, is  
creating the database, populating it with MARC frameworks, also doing  
the checks for installed modules.

So if you can do those bits yourself, then copying the files and  
skipping the installer is a good choice.
