The installer is installing the command-line files with type/creator TEXT/MOZZ,
instead of CMDL/MOZZ (Mozilla) and CMDL/MOSS (Commercial). The command line files 
are:

Mozilla Addressbook
Mozilla Editor
Mozilla Installer
Mozilla Message Compose
Mozilla Messenger
Mozilla Preferences
Mozilla Profile Manager
Mozilla Profile Wizard
Mozilla Select Profile
NSPR Logging

I marked 28989 beta1 (not yet evaluated by pdt team) so I'm going to mark this 
bug beta1 as well since bug 28989 is dependent on this.

The 'CMDL' file type is being restored correctly.  The creattor 'MOZZ' is 
restored for the Mozilla builds correctly.  However, the commercial build's 
shortcuts have the creator set as 'MOZZ' when they should be 'MOSS' as Simon 
pointed out. 

JJ does the copy and renaming of the shortcuts.  The issue here is not 
restoration of file type and creator but setting of creator for the commercial 
build's shortcuts.  Accordingly, reassigning to jj for resolution ofthe latter 
issue.

I already had fixed the Finder Info related issue by adding some code to the NS 
packaging script to preserve the shortcuts' type & creator before AppleSinglin' 
them, so I added one more line to change their creator from 'MOZZ' to 'MOSS'.

Will make the corresponding change in the config.ini template to launch the 
"-installer" args files (Netscape Installer).
