I downloaded TexLive2008, but after dvips -> ps2pdf, it showed smaller paper size, which I couldn't figure out how to correct at that time.
For trial version of TL, I wouldn't even dare try to download it. It's only for those experts, I know.
When TexLive 2009 would be available? Could you make it a bit simpler to download and use it?

Ah, my instructions were for TL'08, I think that there would be still
some differences to TL'07, e.g. TEXMFCNF variable should be set AFAIR.
I would advice to just reinstall TL on the new PC.

In the upcoming release we should (hopefully) have much better support
for Vista and Win7. Pretest version is available now if you want to
try it:
