 \subsection{Top level directories}

 Here is a brief listing and description of the top level directories in
 the \TeXLive{} distribution.

Not that I love discussing, but:
1. we need changed MakeImages.sh, autorun.ini for Windows, etc.
2. install parts for Unix, MacOSX and Windows refer to the top level
   directories (after mounting DVD the user cannot find eg. install-tl.sh
   or (later) install-pkg.sh). All such changes should be explained in 
3. nobody knows other traps...

Karl, sorry
