	Sorry for the un-Mac-like stuff Bruno, but Unix *is* very useful:

[PowerBook:/usr/local/teTeX] juan% find . -name "*path" -print
[PowerBook:/usr/local/teTeX] juan%

	So what you have to do is to cd into 
/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin5.5/ and then at the command 
prompt enter " ./settcshtexpath". That's period-slash-command to avoid 
any possible errors because probably that directory is not in your path 
(if it were you wouldn't have to execute the discussed command, I 
guess). If you are prompted about permissions then try to either become 
root (su) or try to precede the command with sudo and when asked enter 
your own password.

	Sorry if you feel patronized if you're not a Unix beginner!

	Hope that helps. Regards,...
