A little bit of topic here, but some Windows virtual CD/DVD ulities
are unable to mount TL'08 image: MS virtual CD and MagicDisc from
those that I tried. I don't know what is the reason, the .iso image
itself or some deficiencies in these programs. I never investigated
this any further, I just used another program.
