I installed, and I assumed from Herb's question what he meant, from  
the command line with ./install-tl.sh. Means I need to manually  
update the path in TeXShop and $PATH because the install directory  
changes with every new release.

This is the way normally do it since I use a number of different  
platforms (MacOS X, Linux, FreeBSD, Windows,...), so the only  
variation to the pattern is Windows.
