He probably means it doesn't install the Mercurial install package separately, which it doesn't. It's a single install package which is a superset of the Mercurial install package, including TortoiseHg as well.

Having installed TortoiseHg, I cannot find a Mercurial install. This surprises me, as the wording “TortoiseHg (including Mercurial)” led me to believe that the TortoiseHg install would include one.
Is it possible that you meant that TortoiseHg has a built-in Hg client?

What exactly are you looking for when you say you can't find a Mercurial install? At least on Windows TortoiseHg includes the command line "hg.exe" program, which effectively *is* mercurial. What platform are you using?
