Any tools to help software deployment that needs .NET framework and MSDE?

Let's say I am releasing an app that requires the .NET framework and MSDE on client's machine.
Are there any good tools that help me check and install .NET fw and MSDE as needed so that I just have to deal with  the installation of my app instead of installation of .NET and MSDE also?

I'm not aware of any free tools but I have always used WISE for VS .NET.  It is extremely simple to use and supports a massive number of features, including automatically adding the dotNET Framework, etc. as part of your installation app.  It will check for the existence of the framework on the client and if it is missing, it will go ahead and install it.
