Great ! How did it go ?

I think you have to setup a full Erlang environment.
You can of course run Erlang with just the "base-kit",
but in your case you are usng etk and mnesia so you
need everything.

When it comes to your application, there exist a
an application concept which is described in
the documentation under "Design principles":

Relevant info is also the "System principles" which, among
other things, talks about how to create an embedded system:

And I guess that the info in "OAM Principles" also
are important for really serious people...

These concepts are not easy to get a grip on.
I have myself been tearing my hair in frustration
many times. A nice little tutorial on how to package 
a system to be delivered to customer would be great 
to have. 

Any takers... ?
