[tex-live] The texconfig program

I have received the TeX Live 2007 disk and have performed the "medium" 
installation (i.e., the default installation) on Windows XP.

The first sentence of  Section 4, Post-Installation, of "The TeX Live Guide 
TeX Live 2007" says that for *any* operating system additional steps must be 
taken to configure the system.  So far so good.

The first sentence of Section 4.1 says to use the program texconfig  to 
perform said configuration and that it is installed in the subdirectory 
TEXDIR/bin/arch.  I have searched the C: drive, where TeX Live 2007 was 
installed, and the is no TEXDIR subdirectory anywhere.

There is a C:\TeXLive2007\texfm\texconfig folder containing subfolders g, v, 
and x,  but there nothing resembling a texconfig executable anywhere.

I also tried running texconfig from the command line, as suggested for 
changing the paper size, and Windows informed me that it cannot find 

Please advise.

Thank you,
Rex Shudde
