WiX Installer

Wondering if anyone is familiar with WiX.  I've been reading and researching.  I have successfully created an install.  I'm trying to expand on it.  Basically what I want to do is this.

1.  Install SQL on a server which is NOT where I'm performing the install.  I'll have the user provide the machine name.
2.  Copy the database to the server
3.  Install the application where the install is occurring.
4.  Update the Config file to point to where the Database is.

Thanks.

...that said, I'd think that installing sql server on remote computers should not be performed by an installation. Adding a database to a given server, including remote, is OK, but installing sql server itself is an overkill - if that's what you mean by "Install SQL on a server". Depending on what exactly sql server you install, you can even hit license violations, since licensing may depend on the number of processors on the given machine, for instance.
