[tex-live] Not so good experience with TL net install on windows.

I had the same VM problem, Bruno, but only
once, and I /think/ there were still some
TeX Live 2007 environment variables set
at that time.  I would strongly recommend
making sure that all traces of TL 2007's
environment are removed before trying to
install TL 2008, and purely from a personal
perspective, I find that mirroring the
entire directory from CTAN using WGET, and
then installing locally, is far faster than
waiting from the installer to pull things
in piecemeal ...
