There is no missing step.  Palettes->Install Palette..., which I mention
below, installs a copy of the palette into the right location so that
it will be found in the Palettes menu.  It does so by saving a copy of
the palette in the right directory with the name you specify, and then
immediately regenerating the menus so that you don't have to quit/restart
to see the results.
