The things I want the installer to do

-Prompt user for language selection
-proceed with installation in selected language
-skip the license agreement window
-Prompt for feature list
-Prompt for folder to install into
-install application binaries in selected language
-While un-installing, the language should be the language it was installed in.

Of the list above I have only managed to get point 3 to work. However I dont know if it is the correct way. There is no documentation I can find on what tag should nest into what tag. What the property ID names can or cannot be. As per the CHM guidance I have removed the license dialog and specified InstallDirDlg to be the next dialog after the welcome dialog. Inspite of doing that I cant get it to work. It completely skips the point 4 & 5 above and goes straight into the 'confirm to begin installation' window. Clicking next over there installs the product without even asking me which folder or which feature to install. All this is still in one language. The language selection bit is not working yet

Questions:
-Does the UI and UIRef tag go into the Fragment tag or the Product tag?
-What exactly does one put into the Fragment tag?
-If I put the entire UI tag into the Fragment tags then the product installs without any UI. That cant be the correct place for it then. Right?

Please see my Product.wix appended below
