Silent installation of .NET 2.0 using VS 2005

Hi,

i am using a VS 2005 set up project ,to distribute my application,
i cant find a way to silently install the 2.0 framework.
Microsoft has an option to check it as pre-requisite, but then the
user sees the EULA etc.. and this is basically a separated
installation,
i though of installing using the custom action option of the project
but
the custom action starts only after the files were installed, and then
i also need to have the framework in order to run the custom actions.

any idea where and how can i silently distribute the framework?

Thank you

S.

I don't believe there is any way to make it silent. When you include it
with your install, you have to include it "as-is"
