QNX went through a period of naming confusing early in the creation of QNX 6.

At first the entire product was called Neutrino and QNX 6 interchangeably. Later they consolidated on more specific meanings to the names. In particular, Neutrino is the name they give to the microkernel itself. QNX 6 refers to the entire OS. Momentics refers to the development environment and in particular the Eclipse IDE.

At the time of QNX 6.2.1, Momentics was self-hosted running on QNX as well as Windows and one or two other platforms. If you have the self hosted install disk, then you just install it and you have QNX 6.2.1 running on your system. If you instead have a Windows Momentics disk, then you can create a 6.2.1 image with it after installing it.

Things have changed. As of 6.4 Momentics is not part of the self hosted disk, and as of 6.6 there is no self hosted development at all.
