update-image and friends is only useful in case you want to update a 
specific component.
You would use it like this to update only the kernel on the image:
$ jam update-image kernel

I don't think we can currently only update the system folder and leave 
everything else untouched. That might be something we want to change in 
the future, though.
As a work-around, you can create a second image, boot from that one, 
mount the first one, and replace the "beos" folder on the root level of 
the first image.
