If you look in \FrameworkSDK\Samples\Setup you'll see an exe called configsetup ... it uses the sql files in the same dircetory to create  and install the database. Basically it uses dos to run  osql (main sqlserver program) ... a bit odd really that SQLServer is like 150% Windows orientated.
Though I think you could probably run .sql files from Enterprise Manager.

You could do it from a .bat file that would look similar to
