Install package with multiple applications.

I need some help getting started to create an installation package for a place I work.  We have a web application we developed that used ColdFusion8 and Microsoft SQL server 2008.  For ease installation for other users who want seperate servers I need to create a single install package that will guide the user through setting up SQL server express and CF8 as well as our own application configurations.  I've downloaded a trial of Install Anywhere but can't seem to get it to start up sql server installation as an executable.  How can I go about this?

If you need general initial practice in this, I would try reading the manual and maybe knowledge base; also created some trivial project that would install sql server, to see how it works.

If you have some specific problem, such as error message etc., then we can help.
