Install .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows Vista

I ran into an issue with running an old VB .NET application on my Vista computer today, and it was because I needed the .NET 1.1 runtime environment. The installation isn't exactly as straightfoward as you would imagine though. Apparently you have to slipstream .NET 1.1 with .NET 1.1 SP1 in order to get the installation to actually take place. Luckily I found a great article with instructions on where to download the files needed and how to install over at mydigitallife.info. Normally I'd rewrite in my own words, but I don't see the need to with the way it's shown there. Here's the link: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/12/27/install-microsoft-net-framework-11-on-windows-vista-fix-regsvcsexe-fails-error/
