[tex-live] TeX Live installation tools

Hi, I think in earlier years there were some extra tools or ideas for 
scripts meant for special installations.

Do we still have those scripts somewhere?

For install parties it is a bit too slow to install from the net, or 
from USB.

So I wanted to simply take a given TL10 installation from a windows and 
transfer it to another.

As far as I know, one would then only have to add a script to integrate 
it into windows, (given that the location was the same on both computers).

Then the installation is down to the transfer time from a USB stick, 
which is a lot better.

(Yesterday we started a weekly LaTeX Lab here where I work, and at the 
beginning we will spend most of the time helping users to install TL, so 
the faster the better).
