You need to look into the registry at the key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\vVersionNumber.BuildNumber. If the .Net has SPs you will find a value with the SP number.
If you are looking to be able to install automatically the .Net there is another discussion. InstallShield 11.5 know how to do it, but with a bit of tinkering and not so elegant it can be done in 8.

The simplest way to install the .Net 2.0 is to distribute with your application the dotnetfx for 2.0. When missing run it silently, has a size penalty, ads a 22 MB to your setup. Alternatively you could ask the user to install it, just give him the link. Also there are other solutions.
