Dear TeXLive team,
I have tested very quickly TeXLive6 (version from July 2) under
Windows98 (slovak and czech things). It looks very good, indeed
(great job!!), but the following mistakes appear:
1.) in the end, the instalation does not finish correctly:
Environment: creating d:\TeX\bin\win32\setvars.bat
Environment: PATH = d:\TeX\bin\win32;%PATH%
Environment: TEXMFCNF = d:\TeX\texmf-var\web2c
Environment: modifying c:\autoexec.bat
creating shell link vø¿â
Path = d:\TeX\bin\win32\windvi.exe
Show command = 1
...cannot Save() shell link object (80004005)

Error: Failed to grab

Error: fail to install remote files for support/winedt.
4) I choose to install winshell, but in fact two Winshells were
(the first one in TeX basic directory, the second one in the
directory choosen during installation of Winshell -- the older
version). From the startup menu the older version is running.
In this case, some things from documentation does not hold
(to replace yap with windvi,... - may be it will be better just to write:
delete old setting and call windvi... )
Copy F:\texmf\tpm\support\winshell.tpm to
Special file F:\support\WinShell\WinShell20.exe has been found on
Special file F:\support\WinShell\WinShell_2.1_beta.zip has been
