If you are having trouble getting your Model result added to the table of contents when running your tool from a toolbox, make sure you first have "Add results of geoprocessing operations to the display" ticked on, in the Geoprocessing tab of the File>Options dialog in ArcMap/Catalog. Secondly, you must also have "Add to display", "Model Parameter", AND the "Managed" option all ticked on when you right-click and select the options for your output in Model Builder.  This will hide the parameters from the user when run from the toolbox, but should still hopefully add to the display.

.... of course using the "managed" option restricts your output directory and name to teh default path of the input dataset.... gurrr.... back to square one :-( anyone else?
