To my recollection - setup projects vary in the way that they are built from
2003 to 2005 - with 2005, go to setup project properties, click the
prerequisites button and select the SQL stuff you need. This is hte same
place you specifically state you need .Net 2.

You can also mess around with the package.xml files for each item and
manually set things like installing a specific instance etc. The bootstrap
packages are located: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages -

I would caution that if you modify the pre-defined packages, your changes
need to be tested thoroughly - for obvious reasons.
