A partial solution is to put the following files:

http://eclecticdreams.net/Resources/Ersek/BrowserCategories.m
http://eclecticdreams.net/Resources/Ersek/Ersek.nb (2.4 MB)

in a directory like:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Mathematica\Applications\Ersek\Documentation\English

and select Help>Rebuild Help Index. The help material will show up under Add-ons&Links>Ersek in the help browser.

Unfortunately, hyperlinks from one section to another within Ted's material do not work in the Help Browser. I know a very laborious way to fix them one at a time, but I'm not ready to go that route.

Maybe somebody has a better idea?
