I have used the incremental installers in the past. Once, though, there 
was a PTF prerequisite that was undocumented and the install failed. IBM 
actually pulled the installer and re-coded it so that wouldn't happen 
again. Thankfully it was on a test server.

Other than that I've had great luck with the incremental installers.

On a side note, I would like to express my thanks to the Domino for 
iSeries team for having the 6.5.1 package out at the same time as the 
other server platforms.
