A assume that you mean the top level directory which contains the "Build" script.
Regardless, I can't find an "insall-live.sh" in any of the directories.
* From the top level I tried: find . -name install-live.sh -print
* => Resulting in nothing.
* Then I tried a tar -vtjf source.tar.bz2 | grep install-live.sh
* => Again nothing.

My "Build" script ends up in the same directory as the tarball file, which is in a directory I made names ..texlive.

So I can just make up a Master Tree? Say /usr/local/texlive or /usr/local/texmf?

Build puts all binaries in ../texlive/inst/bin/i686-pc-cygwin
Environment variable is: OSTYPE=cygwin
So now I have all of the binaries.
I need to set TEXMFMAIN and TEXMFSYSVAR....
But, I don't know where to.... just make up to /usr/local/texlive and ...texlive/share/texmf?
I am sorry that I don't know alot about the innards of this yet.
