but, unfortunatelly, TeXLive.exe cannot be run in such a way.
Workaround for testing texlive.exe: unpacking the whole CD
on another partition, changing files, etc. (or waiting for the next
.iso ;-)

TeXSetup from May, 22nd works well on win98. Fabrice, thanks for
repairing shell links preparation on w95 and w98.
NTEmacs installs in c:\NTEmacs so I guess that selecting another
directory works only from TeXLive menu, right?

windvi canot start mktexpk->gsftopk for fonts *already* registered
in $VARTEXMF/dvips/config/config.ps (but dvips uses them well).
