Hi Stephen,

The installer packaged with greenstone was never really intended to work
with more than one collection. It might be possible to get it to do what you
want though. Take a look at the following post for more details:
http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/library?c=gsarch&a=d&d=HASHf26df1aa702a90bc16ae37s403

If that doesn't work you might also try creating your own installer from one
of the many free and non-free installer packages available on the web. I've
used Inno Setup (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php) a few times. It's free
and relatively easy to use.

We also have an alternative greenstone installer which was submitted to us
by Roman Chyla. I played with it briefly and it seemed very good. It may
perhaps do what you require. You can get a copy of it from
http://www.greenstone.org/tmp/install.zip. The intention was to make Roman's
installer available as an alternative to the standard greenstone one. There
was some debate over the best way to structure things though so it hasn't
happened yet. Feel free to give it a try and let us all know what you think.

Good luck,
Stefan.
