I installed OpenSwing components in NetBeans 6.5 as described
I followed those steps below:
* Create a library definition for the components:
1- select "Tools | Library | New Library" from menu bar
2- set the library name (e.g. 'OpenSwing') and click OK
3- when the newly created library is selected, click 'Add Jar/Folder'
4- select all the openswing jar files (under the 'build' directory in openswing installation) and click 'Add jar/folder'
* Install Openswing components:
1- select 'Tools | Palette | Swing/AWT Components' from menu bar to open the Palette manager
2- create a new category via 'New Category' button
3- select the newly created category and select 'Add From Library'
4- select 'OpenSwing' library and click Next
5- select all the available components and click Next
6- select 'OpenSwing' category , click Finish and close the palette manager.
* Add the library to a java application project. (Right-click on Libraries node and select 'Add Library').
Finally I could not see any components on palette.
Is there any problem for Netbeans 6.5?

I use openSwing with NetBeans 6.5 with no (real) problems
I created a new project
Go to the properties
and in the library section add the openSwing library
to add a Guiform, I added a Jinternalframe from the swing gui, since I could not find any openSwing InternalFrame, and changed that in the editor to a internalframe
from thereon I have openSwing in the Pallette
