    Either way. So long as it is installed as boot2, you're fine. I have it installed as both, as HBC allows easy access to bootmii IOS.

    I did just boot2. The only reason you would install it as an IOS is if your wii is newer and you can't install as boot2. Boot2 gives most protection

    It isn't needed as an IOS if you can install it as boot2, so just stick with a boot2 installation. If you don't have a vunerable boot2 then the only thing you can do is install it as an IOS, which doesn't provide brick protection like boot2 does.

    I installed both so I can access BootMii on startup and from the HBC whenever I need to.
