Need help with custom install package

P: n/a
This is my first custom installer and essentially I needed to create one that
installed windows installer 3.1 then installed .Net 2.0 Service Pack 1. I
could not find a pre-packaged .Net 2.o SP 1 installer package anywhere so
this is my attempt.

The problem seems to be that when I first created it if .NET 2.0 was
installed it would not install .NET 2.0 SP1 so I commented out the line where
it checks but that leads the installer to try and reinstall it on reboot.
Can anyone tell me how to differentiate between .NET 2.0 and .NET 2.0 SP 1?

my package.xml file:
