	I market in a small way and paid the $200 for Smaller Installer.  Never been
sorry even for one minute.  Up to that point my "install" instructions was to
have the end user drag a file to their  hard drive.  With the advent of FB
and help files this would have added a step while hoping the user got the
help file where it belongs.

	I keep a folder for my Smaller Installer installation.  I can put in a fresh
copy of my application after attending to an undocumented feature that always
crops up, toss in a read me and cook the whole thing up instantly. 

	The whole presentation of you product will be enhanced.  If nothing else,
just the name Smaller Installer hits people right.  It will run quickly and
there is no chance of things getting in the wrong place.  Tech support
becomes simpler as you named the folder for the installer.  My advice...go
with the installer.
