How to consider BrowserCategories in Version 6.0?

I want to embed supplementary Mathematica packages in Mathematica 
version 6.0.x and want to include the BrowserCategories.m and 
BrowserIndex.nb files in the Help system.

In version 5.2 I installed under the directory tree
Program Files > Wolfram Research > Mathematica > 5.2 > AddOns > 
Applications >  (supplementary package eg. FuzzyLogic) > Documentation > 
English > ( .m and .nb files such as BrowserCategories.m, 
BrowserIndex.nb ...)
Then in the Help pulldown menu there is a button "Rebuild Help Index" 
with the result that afterwards the additional information was
accessible in the Help menu under Help Browser > Add-ons & Links.

The same directory tree structure is present in version 6.0.x too. 
Hence, I could insert in the subdirectory "Applications" -  or even 
better in "ExtraPackages" - the supplementary packages  etc. I would 
like to access in version 6.0 too.  However, what I cannot find is a 
similar button which corresponds to "Rebuild Help Index" (as in version 
5.2) to rebuild the Help Index.

My question is : how can I install an external  Mathematica package so 
that the files BrowserCategories.m and BrowserIndex.nb will be 
considered in version 6.0?

Thanks in advance for helpful suggestions.
