I'm sorry, none of those are what I was looking for.  I am using InstallShield  software, and I need to include the .NET framework.  I can't send out multiple files and they can't be zipped.

ok, that works.  Do I need a speacial command line for the .NET framework so that it doesn't restart before my installation is done?

FYI, quoted from a post of MS newsgroup answered by a MS guy:

The .NET Framework needs to be installed using the bootstrapper and not through the InstallUISequence table.  I can't speak to the limitations of the InstallShield bootstrapper (http://community.installshield.com is a better avenue), but you could create an intelligent bootstrapper yourself that is able to handle the localized Win98 platform.

Hope this helps,

As far as I know, after u install .net framework, reboot should be done to make the .net installation complete. I don't think that you should suppress the reboot.
