Claus, thanks for the information. Didn't know that TeXLive could be
run from DVD. Has anyone ever tried this before? Does it work in a
comfortable way? Do we _really_ need a whole DVD to run? (The previous
portable LaTeX mentioned in my message could fit on a USB drive. Not
sure how big the USB drive has to be, though.)
