I've uploaded this mod to forum - no 'install' option given, and also mods are still not installing. What am I suppose to do? :)

did you create a folder called 'temp' inside /Packages and chmod that to 777?

As far as I know, there are plenty of SMF's there, including 2.0b's. And only I have that kind of problem, so I suppose it's my own  problem.
But I always can ask our support team, never harms :)

Well, can anyone tell me an exact list of files, that must be writable? I'll check it out.

If you have set the packages directory permissions to 777 and also tried 775 and 755 and none of those work, you'll need to ask your host to set the owner for the SMF files to the webserver user.
