Well, the "default" installation or the big "target group"
bundles wouldn't ask any questions if I understood the
ideas that have been discussde here.

Feedback would only be for (1)people who feel advanced
enough to select "custom" installation or (2)to install
additional package from the SEUL CD-ROM or (3)to install
packages not found on the CD-ROM.

Install Shield for '95 told me that I needed a certain SQL
server in order to run the Delphi/SQL integration so I
could easily decide not to install that part because of
disk usage requirements.

I think this is pretty convenient :-)

Then again, InstallShield scripts usually don't give the
option to select individual base libs such as the MFC 4.0
libs.  But this would be the same with installing libc,
libc++, etc. in the huge initial "basic system" package,
even in the custom install, right ?
