The section that reads "Installation

  The installation script is now named install-tl,
  and has both GUI (default on Windows) and text
  (default on everything else) operation modes.
  You can force one or the other with the options
  -gui and -no-gui, respectively. "

is likely to confuse the more naive Windows user.
In fact, the installation script (for Win/XP)
is named "install-tl.bat", whilst "install-tl"
is a 46kb file which looks (to my untrained eye)
as if it were a Unix script.
