Setup and Deployment with Visual Studio 2008

Is it possible to install the Microsoft .net framework 3.5 entirely from a Setup Project? I notice that by default, the project will detect the host computer hasn't got the .net framework installed, and then will download it from the Microsoft Download Centre. I would like the entire framework to be installed as part of the Setup Project.

    Include .Net Framework 3.5 in setup project as prerequisite.
