How does one go about setting up an item that is dependent on the availability of subitems? (Product with subproducts?)

For example:

I sell an assembly consisting of four separate sub items, each for sale individually (but at a higher price).

I need to be able to allow my customers to order the assembly (at a lower price) and update the quantities of the sub items automatically.

So much the better if I only have to manage inventory for the sub items and have the assembly quantities update themselves automatically.

This way, a customer can order three assemblies plus two of the separate components without me running the risk of being out of stock on any of the items.

I hate having to update 5 product quantities manually every time I sell one assembly.

Detailed instructions or a guide for v6.5 would be helpful.

Great prices on factory remanufactured ink cartridges and laser toner in Canada.
