Using Differing Setup Classes In One Module
On occasion you may have a module which requires both EAV and flat resource setup classes, in this situation you can instantiate a setup class as this note shows.
$installer = Mage::getModel('eav/entity_setup', 'eav_setup');
$installer = Mage::getResourceModel('core/setup', 'core_setup');
$installer = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/setup', 'catalog_setup');
You can then continue with the setup script as you normally would.
