|Provisioning the SDK from scratch [message #488980]

The wiki page for the director app has a section that talks about "Installing a Complete Product." I want to do exactly that: provision the Eclipse SDK from the 3.6 milestone repository into a local directory. From scratch. Don't want to update 3.5 to 3.6.|
So the director app ships with Eclipse. Is there a standalone download that just has the bare minimum to run it? Or do I have to download the SDK and then specify that launcher plugin? Seems like a chicken and egg problem..
In any case, I tried the following example, referencing the 3.5 launcher:
C:\eclipse3.5>java -jar plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_*.jar -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -metadataRepository http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6milestones -artifactRepository http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/3.6milestones -installIU org.eclipse.sdk.ide -profile SDKProfile -profileProperties org.eclipse.update.install.features=true -bundlepool c:/output -p2.os win32 -p2.ws win32 -p2.arch x68 -roaming -vmargs -Declipse.p2.data.area=c:/output/p2
But it fails, and the error message includes this:
Software being installed: Eclipse SDK 3.6.0.I20090917-0100
Software currently installed: Eclipse SDK 3.5.0.I20090611-1540
I don't understand. Why is it even looking at my 3.5 profile? Where did I reference that? Does the launcher know its profile? The whole point of what I'm trying to do is setup a new Eclipse install, not update my 3.5 setup, which I'm only even referencing because I need the director app from some plugin there.
My end goal is to use the director app to headlessly provision the SDK, followed by content from other repositories, such as BIRT, GEF, etc.
Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
