Restore Incremental Backups

I am using Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 8.5 (formely LiveState Recovery)

I am doing Weekly Base backup, with daily incremental backups.

In case of distaster, how would I do a full system restore with incrementals?

Do I select the incremental and the system automatically resotre the base backup and each incremental automatically?  
Or
Do I have to select the base backup for restore and manually restore each increment?

If you use recovery point sets to protect a hard drive, when you restore to a  given point in time, the full recovery point plus all the incrementals up to  that point in time are used for the restore.  
For example, suppose you have a full recovery point with eight incremental  recovery points. You decide to restore to the point in time that the fourth  incremental was taken. When you restore, the full recovery point and the first  four incrementals are used to restore the computer.

That's what I was hoping for.

It would make sense the program would restore each increment for me automatically.  I was afraid, I would have to do it manually, which would hamper and slow the restore process.

Thanks
