How does one learn how to use this for the 1st time, without a manual?
I have inherited an application that used InstallScript, and have all the files except the msi. How do I find out where to place the .rul & .fgl etc files and recreate the pacakge? :o

I would start with the built in tutorial.

Incidently, I think flg files went out with IS 6.3, all these things are contained within one ISM file.
Choose the Welcome Assistant from the Help menu and it will step you through some basic scenarios.

Beyond that, get to know the events that InstallShield goes through and learn to use the help documentation to learn about individual functions.
