long time since I developed in VB6 though I kind of think I remember that you could call a batch script within the installer program. In that case I suggest that you use a batch file and simple basic code like:
mkdir "Sound", "Picture"
xcopy dbfilename path\filename

or make use of the wscript features and vbs files.

Try using VB6's package and deployment wizard. (Visual Studio 6 Tools). :)
