You need to supply alot more information to get any relevant answer. Such as:
Where are you? New install or retrofit? Interior or exterior? What kind of exterior? Brick? Wood? Vinyl? Electric in wall to be moved? Plumbing?
Cost is contingent on conditions and location.

You mention the cost of the door like it is relevant to the installation. I do not see the point. But with the information we know, the installation could range from a simple 1/2 day remove and replace to a two day or more job, possibly involving electrical ,plumbing, siding , drywall, and wall framing. Sorry.

A good price is exactly what you agree to pay to a contractor that you believe knows what he's doing that then delivers what he's promised. Hire a competant man (or woman) and leave him (or her) alone until it's time to hand him (or her) a check. If you're pricing the materials you may as well have your bidders price it as labor only...just be sure you're willing to pay the hourly cost of 2 men chatting and smoking while YOU make another run to Home Depot.

I agree with Ron, we need some more information!

Generally it will be just about the same as the cost of the door.
The best thing to do is just call around. the installation price can vary by hundreds of dollars. You need someone that can give you references or has a known good rep. I've installed many of them and it is not as easy as many people think. Well unless your done it many times.
