I really appreciate your help, but I don't think you understand my question. You have posted links to 2 different backup managers. The first link, labeled as retail, gives you manager.pkg. The second link labeled as debug, gives you rdx_manager.pkg. The difference between these two, is what I wanted to know. I said screw it and went with the regular manager.pkg. So hopefully I picked the right one.
Also, figured out the package.conf issue. Damn windows appended .txt to it as well even tho I selected all files and specified my own ext (.conf)! Never had that issue before, just had to unhide file extensions in folder options and then rename it without the damned .txt. Then, presto. Package made! Will explore the link you have provided, once again thanks.
