I second the thanks, having a new Intel machine with 10.4.6 and
w/o Tex!

The startup message I got said up or down grade the OS!

Two oddities:  on http://ii2.sourceforge.net/
the link for i-Installer v2. simply returns you to the same page.

Also, http://ii2.sourceforge.net/tex-index.html
seems to end mid sentence:

	* use pdftex which directly creates PDF from TeX without going via
	Postscript. By default, most front ends on the Mac will use this route.
	But you win some (speed, simplicity, some special PDF options) and you
	lose some. What you mainly use

and that's it for the penultimate paragraph.
