Not at all. I don't think we have any users using preview-latex (my fault
I guess, I normally just use gv and perhaps latexmk)

I just wanted a version of NTEmacs and Auc TeX of course to be on the CD.
That's all my users need.

Most people here don't use all of the hidden potential in Auc TeX, most
just just it to insert environments, sections fontcommands and to compile
the file and perhaps contert it into ps, that all.

I hope to have the time to do a long LaTeX introduction again this fall,
in which I'll demonstrate preview-latex. But the users here basically just
do what ever I tell them to do ;-) ...
