I am interested in this, yes. Does it require an installation of erlang 
to be present or is it "self contained" (i.e. you send the 
self-extracting/self-running archive and it does the rest)?

SAE (discontinued since R9 I believe) has the best implementation I have 
seen, with the single file being all that was required in order to run 
an Erlang application/server. If Joe were ever to get this back into 
working order - he would have many grateful fans (over and above those 
of his book *grin*)
