The future of i-Installer and the i-Packages is a bit uncertain at  
this stage. Last I heard from Gerben, at the end of July, he had   
migrated completely his hardware to Leopard and, after some trials,  
had concluded that it was practically impossible to compile for Tiger  
on Leopard. The result was that i-Installer and the i-Packages would  
support 10.5 only, and fearing that this would mean the end of their  
usefulness for many Mac users Gerben was thinking about retiring i- 
Installer and the i-Packages alltogether.

For more accurate and up-to-date answers I'd advise contacting Gerben  
directly (he's no longer monitoring this list regularly).
