On-location CS4 not separate install now? Bummer

I have the CS3 production suite and On-LOcation was on a separate CD with it's own serial number and activation. This was great as I do not need the entired Suite installed on my laptop just to capture, nor do I need On-location when I'm in my editing studio. It made prefect sense.

Now it appears to be integrated into the main install and as such will be activated as part of the Suite.......making it harder to run on my "field" laptop. I have a main workstation that is a powerhouse and a workstation class laptop that is terrible as a recording device as the battery life is the pitts and it's noisy as heck. So in my current setup with CS3, the full suite exists on my main machine and my main travelling edit laptop which is in compliance with the license agreement. On-location exists only on my smaller, more eco and battery friendly laptop. I cannot recreate this now with CS4?

Marty, have you tried to install only OnLocation from the Suite main install menu on your "field" laptop?

I suppose you could also continue to use CS3 O.L. on your field laptop... CS4 makes a few changes to O.L., but just mostly to the interface to make it more "Adobe-like".
