Ah, good point, thanks. I hope Tomasz will include it shortly.

Well, it follows the way of the TL project to keep texmf-local outside
TLRoot, for eg. quick uninstall/reinstall (quite the same is in MiKTeX).
You can install TL in any directory (or disk), btw.
Thanks for testing, and please keep on doing that, as we are rather in a 
hurry and need some help. You can always check
get the latest *-setup.zip, unpack it in the local directory and play with
it only pointing to your current CD (or even mounted image file, just to
spare time for burning; see: http://www.daemon-tools.cc).
Please, remove your TL installation before, for a sake.
