install shield is the best!  it will do custom looking installs and serial keys etc.  It isn't too expensive for what it does.

or you can change vb setup

just open this project and change default setup

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\Wizards\PDWizard\Setup1

Hi!

If you wan't to modify VB setup1 see this:

Also be avare that there is new Setup1.vbp in service pack so apply latest SP for VB.

CD-key is just someting you have to give before install goes on and that may be stored in Setup1.exe or in file Setup.lst but these can be copied as well as CD's can.
