I have taken over a VB.Net 2005application which has been recently converted to 2008. It is now version 2008 The deployment is already created but I want to modify some things.

Instead of Welcome to the Setup1 Setp Wizard I would like the install to say  Welcome to the Widget Setup Wizard.
I want a shortcut created, a menu slection created and change the default Installation folder.
This project connects to a SQL Server database. Do I set that up separately or is it somehting I can install from the VB.Net deployment package?
