SCCMC#* msi

I have an application that now needs to be installed via a msi file using SCCM.

The application consists of a executable, library (.dll), configuration and a number of other files plus a number of folders containing HTML pages, javascript files and stylesheets.

The users can create there own stylesheets (with unique names) and these must not be removed when the update is performed.

What I need to be able to do is
for a new install, copy all files and folders to path specified by installer.
for an update, overwrite any named files but leave all other files.
for an uninstall remove all folders.

The ability to roll back would be handy but not essential at this stage.

If a new path is chosen for the install then the old files and folders are left where they are so it is treated as a new install, not a modification.

Does anyone know how of any examples where this has been done or any tutorials on it?
