In my answer below I forgot to mention that a "guide page" is also needed.
The guide page is a Mathematica notebook with the links to rest of the
documentation. In my Quantum Package, the guide page can be found in the
folder (directory)
$UserBaseDirectory/Applicatons/Quantum/Documentation/English/Guides; this
location corresponds to the line Resources->{"Guides/Quantum"} in the
PacletInfo.m file    

 (the name of guide page

I have already done this with my Quantum package for Dirac Notation in
Mathematica

It is very simple: You need to create an ASCII file called PacletInfo.m (in
Windows an ASCII file can be created in the Notepad) with some specific
information and place it in the correct folder.

You could download my package, follow the instructions in order to install
it, check that its documentation appears in the Documentation Center, then
go to your $UserBaseDirectory/Applicatons/Quantum and see by yourself the
content of my PacletInfo.m, then copy this file and modify it to make it
work for your package.

Download my package from this link:

I hope it is useful for you

Asunto: [mg84245] Mathematica 6 Documentation - how does one add to it?

I have written a package I would like to pass someone else. I would
like to install it in such a way that the documentation appears in the
Documentation Center under 'Installed Add-ons' but I can't find out
how best to do this, although I have managed to do it using a method I
think is not reccomended in version 6.

I have a Mathematica text book which was written before version 6 and
it has a file called BrowserCategories.m which was used to add
documentation to the Help Browser. This does work in version 6's
Documentation Center, but I can find no reference to this file in
Mathematica 6's documentation and the Function BrowserCategory is not
documented in Mathematica 6, although it is on the web

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/Add-onsLinks/AuthorTools/Customi=
zin
gTheHelpBrowser/SettingUpNewBrowserCategories/TheBrowserCategoryCommand.h=
tml

but only on the obsolete version 5.2's help pages.

Please reply to the news group, not to me personally as I don't read
this email account. I don't need the spam that one attracts if posting
to a news group with ones normal email address.
