[texhax] Can't install tex on my PC

I have the 2008 DVD for Tex Live. I am trying to install it on my PC but I cannot get it to work.
With the DVD in the PC, I found an install-tl icon and clicked on it. A window opened up with an "Install texlive" button. I clicked on it and the computer spent a couple of hours or more putting files
into the texlive/2008 folder.
But I can't find the exec file to run pctex or latex or anything like that. In the PC TeXLive 2008 folder, there is a PS_view icon, the Tex Live Manager, manuals in all languages, a toplevel readme index and TeXdoc GUI, which appears to be a TeX Documentation Browser.
I have Tex installed on my Mac, so I copied a Tex file from Mac to my flash drive and put the file on the PC laptop, thinking if I tried to open that, it would automatically find the exec file for me, but Windows says it doesn't know what program created my Tex file.
