deployment - custom install actions

P: n/a
I am trying to create a setup project for my C# winforms application. The
setup project works perfectly, for the most part. The difficulty I am having
is this: I want to run two custom actions after the install is complete.
First, I want to run the MSDE installation, and second, I want to run a
small C# console app that configures the newly-installed MSDE. The problem
is that I can't run the installation for the MSDE, because the Windows
Installer detects that the original installer is working.

Currently, I have my two custom actions in the Commit area, but this does
not work. How can I tell my install program to run the MSDE installer?

I have tried to use the merge modules at a part of my setup project, but it
errors out on me when I try to run the installer app.
