VBScript for .msi

Does anyone out there know of a good tutorial for learning VBScript for .msi? Most of the vbscripting I have done is to automate routine tasks (AD, WMI) but I would like to find a good guide to learn how to perform certain tasks while repackaging and when/where it would be benificial to do this. Thanks.

if you know wmi you wont' have any problem. the windows installer sdk has some good examples.
a common use is to pass property names to vbscript variables, and vice versa, using vbscript/wmi to find or manipulate data in the environment and passing it to the MSI for action.
