On a Mac you click on the "Palette/Install Palette" (after you have
run the code above in your example), select which palette to install
then give it a name and click on either of the "User Base" or "System
Base" locations to save it, and then click on Finish. Then from the
Palette menu you should now have the new palette in the list of
available choices, so select the name and it should now appear with
the correct name you gave it (the other one has a name of untitled-x
which you can now close). Then restarting Mathematica the palette
should now be started automatically along with any others you had.
