Thank you Siep — that is looking good.  Now I have configured the 
various installation directories and selected scheme "Small" (which 
should suffice for testing) but one more question — what is the correct 
answer to "After install, set CTAN as source for package updates" ?  If 
I answer "yes", will it know to use the pre-test files rather than CTAN 
proper, and if not, how do I tell it to "After install, set 'pre-test' 
as source for package updates" ?  And if I don't select this option, 
will it continue to use my local repository for the remainder of the 
life of TeX Live 2021 (or until told otherwise) ?
