[texhax] TeX on Vista

Before I downgraded my computer to XP, I did get TeX working on it.  I 
think I had to make myself super-user (just being administrator wasn't 
enough) and I first installed TeX-Live 2007 which ran but couldn't display 
or print since it didn't have permission to write fonts.  (It is possible 
that I did this before realizing I had to make myself super-user; this was 
a year and a half ago).  Then I installed Miktex, v. 2.7 and that 
installed and ran without difficulty.  Still I had enough problems with 
Vista ("find" never found anything, for example) that I downgraded and am 
happy with that decision.
