Documenting an Install Program

I've been asked to document a few install programs that I inherited from a couple of previous developers.  So far, I've worked on a text description of the main program and listed source files and their target destinations.  Does anyone have any suggestions or standards for documenting an InstallShield install?  This happens to be InstallShield Pro 5.5, but I guess the same question could apply to any install.

Please note that InstallShield generates a build report that lists all components, files, versions etc.
For the program logic in the script you could use the same methods as for other programming languages (flow charts etc.)
