>MczInstaller is meant to load the chunk-format code inside an mcz archive without using the normal Monticello machinery. This is useful for bootstrapping Monticello its self or for loading code inside an mcz archive without having to dig around inside the zip manually.
>It sounds like you want to update existing code and not just load a package from scratch, right? If so, it would better to use Monticello rather than just MczInstaller. In that case, you'd do:
>MCVersionReader loadVersionFile: '/mnt/dns323/monticello/package-name.XXX.mcz'

Perfect - thanks...

So I need to have full Monticello loaded into my headless image,

(Which is no trouble - the machine has 256 MB of RAM and 256 MB of
FLASH, and I'm booting off a 2 GB uSD card)
