This is all true, but I simply don't have permission to use 'mount' on the compute grid where I would like to install texLive.  A release of texLive in a format other than iso will be welcomed.

By the way, the author of cdrtools pointed out that texlive2007-live-20070212.iso was made with an old version of cdrtools which creates defective directories under rr_moved when performing deep directory relocations (there are three such relocations in the texLive image).
