I'd guess that the actual TeX(-related) programs and the texmf tree 
(s) are likely to be fine on Vista; if there are problems, they're  
likely to be with the installation procedures/programs.

If this turns out to be right (I don't have a Vista system to  
experiment with), then it should be possible to build a small  
installer (e.g, an updated tlpmgui) and offer as a standalone  
download, so that people can set up TL from the standard TL2007 disks  
(or images) without having to re-download a whole mass of stuff.
