Hi there,

well, i have not figured out how to actually create a proper index in 
version 6.0.

There is two things you can do:

1) Once you start Mathematica, press F1 for help. In the lower right 
corner you find a link to "Installed Add-Ons". The you should find a link 
called "IMTEK". Following this the old help browser will start. One tab is 
called AddOns and the second one is called MasterIndex. Those should help 
you a little.

2) The following code opens the IMS master index:

   ToFileName[{$imsIMSDirectory, "Imtek", "Documentation", "English"},

maybe that helps

i hope that someday i find a tutorial or something on how to generate 
a proper index for version 6.
