Ignoring Robin's petulant little outburst (below),
I shall continue trying to help Jerónimo Leal.

Having fetched 2008.zip, I then unzipped it into
T:\TeX\Archive\Systems\TLnet\2008 (using paths),
then navigated to T:\TeX and create T:\TeX\Live
and T:\TeX\Live\Installer.

In T:\TeX\Live\Installer, I created a shortcut to
appending " -location T:\TeX\Archive\Systems\TeXlive\TLnet\2008"

I next launched the installer using this newly-created
shortcut, and changed the root directory for the TeX Live
installation to T:\TeX\Live\2008

Finally I clicked on the "Install TeX Live" button,
and installation commenced.

A final update will follow when the installing has
completed and been tested.
