[tex-live] Re : TL-2009 + Win/XP + Rsync + CACLS : Success :-

Three caveats :

1) After editing the installation path (click at-end,
reverse drag, overtype), it took six (6) clicks on 
[OK] before it seemed to notice.

2) After editing the TEXMFHOME path (click at-end,
reverse drag, overtype), <paste> did not erase
the already-highlit contents.

(these two seem to echo similar unsatisfactory 
behaviours in TeX Live 2008)

3) In the GUI, I am asked "Add shortcuts to menu
and desktop".  Of course I want to add shortcuts
to the Start menu, but I do not want to clutter 
my desktop with them.  So could these two options
please be factored out ?

Now starting with the install proper.
