How do I package all my VB.NET app's components to deploy on another machine?

I have completed the development of a VB.NET application that has several user controls, class libraries, DLLs and one main application -- exe, which references the other components (DLLs). How do I package the separate components together and deploy on another Windows 2000 machine?
You'll need to develop an installation program. While there's a basic setup project type in Visual Studio .NET, I'd highly recommend using InstallSheild as it has many more options and is much easier to use.
