I also suspect some hardware/hard drive problems (or a bug in VMware). Today:
- I experienced a failed installation of TeX Live (took an infinite
amount of time until I forced-quit it)
- I was unable to remove a directory (Owner cannot be determined).
- I was unable to update MikTeX due to some other permission problems.

Still, the other two problems:
- unable to run "tlmgr install foo"
- unable to make ptex format on windows
don't seem to relate to my hardware and are probably related to tiny
buglets in TeX Live & pTeX macros (related to the fact that pTeX
doesn't use utf-8 on Windows).

It is up to Karl to decide how acceptable/unacceptable the problems
are in the eyes of releasing a DVD with "known problems".
