Look under "setup and deployment projects" in the new project menu, here you will find several variants.

Rather than try to explain the entire process (which could/does take several pages), here are a few links to some very very good documentation on creating/using setup and deployment projects.

The second link is to one of the official "Setup and deployment project FAQ's", it has many other links to MSDN documentation, example projects/code, etc.
