Any InstallShield gurus out there?

I have a new product, and we need some help setting up the install script (don't want to pull my key developers off for something that's fairly simple). Anybody out there have some experience with InstallShield? I have a spec, but basically it involves standard software install plus running some SQL scripts. Drop me a line if you can help or know somebody. Thanks!
