Not very much to learn if you only need it to download TeXLive. But
you need 5 GB disk space.

Another possibility is to download the CD image, which contains a zip
file for each package and can installed significantly faster.  You
need a bittorrent client for the download.

BTW, 4 hrs for a TL installation is quite unusual, maybe there is
something wrong with your friend's DVD drive.  Why don't you try it
yourself on your machine?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
