ive used PACKAGESITE recently as well, i used it like this:


you have to specify it as far as the directory you want it to pull the files 
from.  ../All/ would also be acceptable.

now that im about to click send, i actually cant recall if i specified the 
trailing slash or not... so be prepared to reset and try again.

good luck,
