why doesn't setup.exe install everything?

in the past it was trivial to do a full install.  now it appears to be a
royal pain in the ass -- i have to click every package and guess what
version i should be installing (the UI doesn't really make it obvious what
versions i should be installing).

a search for "full install" on this mailing list gets 1089 matches.  one
of the first indicates that "there's a solution somewhere in the mail
archives".  but that's not much of a help, having to randomly guess search
terms doesn't seem very friendly.

could someone please update the FAQ?  and/or fix setup.exe?

or point me at an older setup.exe which works?

thanks for an otherwise excellent product though, win2k isn't useable
without it.
