Hello all,

I just installed teTeX and have a few questions about texconfig/pdftex.

- Under the texconfig pdftex options, is "metafont mode".  What does this
affect?  How would I know which value to choose?

- How can I tell what is the current setting for texconfig pdftext metafont

- I tried pdftex on a simple texinfo file, I works fine but the font is a
bit fuzzy in Acrobat 5.0 reader.  Can this be the result of incorrect
"metafont mode" setting?

- I haven't yet run a batch job to generate fonts (e.g. "allcm"), could that
be the reason for fuzzy fonts?
