As an aside, I always wondered why the default paper size when installing
(expert install) TeX on my system came up as a4 when my default is set to
``US letter'' in my System Preferences -> Print and Fax pane. Using OS X
10.3.6. I thought i-installer got the default from that setting.

Of course this is no big deal since it's easy enough to choose ``letter''
from the drop down list.

Good Luck,
