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.
