#214 Using Mozilla (NGLayout) in Homesite 5

I recently upgraded to Homesite 5, and discovered this much unpublicized feature: Homesite's (supposed) capability to use NGLayout/Gecko/The Mozilla rendering engine in preview mode.
The help section was a little unhelpful. Here's a quote: -- * -- If you have Netscape version 6 or later on your system and you correctly install and configure the Mozilla browser NGLayout/gecko control, you can use Netscape as the internal browser. Please note the Mozilla control is under development and is limited in its functionality and stability. For setup instructions, see "To install and configure Mozilla:".
To install and configure Mozilla: Download a Mozilla build from <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/releases/>. For best results, download the Mozilla 0.8.1 build created on 8/28/2001, from <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pu…1/mozilla-win32-0.8.1.zip>.
Unzip the Mozilla binary files into a new directory on your system. Open a Command prompt and change to the Mozilla bin directory. For example, if the bin directory is in D:\mozilla, enter d: and then enter cd mozilla\bin. Enter regsvr32 mozctlx.dll. If this does not work, the directory containing regsvr32.exe is not in your PATH variable. Use the Windows Find Files utility to locate the program and then run it using the full path; for example c:\winnt\system32\regsvr32.exe mozctl.dll.

Okay - here are my questions about this information: 1)If references a much older build. 2) It mentions using "regsvr32.exe mozctl.dll" and "regsvr32.exe mozctlx.dll". Note the 'x' after 'mozctl' in the second instance. So my questions are: what is the difference between the two? Which one should I use? What do these dlls do? How are they different?
Also - the Macromedia Knowledge Base article is equally unhelpful, by providing different information: It mentions editing the registry to put an entry to the bin directory, which I think does not exist any more (on newer builds.)

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
