Newbie Trying to Write an Installer

I am very excited to attempt coding with the NSIS installer, but I guess I kinda got ahead of myself and am somewhat lost in trying to implement my code.

I am attempting to write an automatic installer for a 128gb ram patch for Windows XP, but I am not familiar with a lot of commands. I've tried referencing commands, but I am still falling short of understanding how to properly make the installer. I've spent almost 7 hours attempting this now, I think.

I established a specific outline of my plan, but I am just having a bit of trouble converting my pseudocode to actual code.

I need to take this step-by-step:
1. How can I make the NSIS installer menu say "You are installing the 128gb Ram Patch by Diyba?" I am aiming for the default menu that has a next and back button.
2. My installer will be taking two different folders of files. How can I make these files part of the installer file?
3. Once those two problems are solved, I must figure out how to set the default installation directory. How can I change the $INSTDIR's default location?
4. I also need to take a look at my code for the registry information; I am not too familiar with the whole thing and need to review the code there.

I tried skimming the chapters for NSIS, but I am still confused.
