Reading the documentation should be your first stop.

Unfortunately custom dialogs are not supported by InstallShield LE in Visual Studio. YOu would need to create a small application to do this, compile it as an executable, add it to the installer project, then call that executable as a 'Custom Action'.

Custom Actions can be run before the first dialog is shown in the Installer Wizard.

It's not ideal but it would work.
