PC-Quest has already published a single page article on TeX around October 2001 and it also gave TeX for Windows. In fact I started using LaTeX after reading that article though I have Linux system for the last 1 year. But I could not use the TeX distributed by PC-Quest, instead I am using the Linux one. Thanks to CVR, I learnt about AUC-TeX and some two months back I downloaded and installed it. Now TeXing is a pleasure.

The combination mentioned by SV may be got burnt on CDs in bulk (as it costs less than Rs.100/- per CD) and TUG members desirous it may get it for some nominal Price + handling charges.

1)	I want to know about the ‘reftex’ mentioned in the recent mails. How to get it and How to install it.
2)	I have gone to the Source-forge site to download the ‘preview-latex’ but confused. It is better if some one who already downloaded and installed it writes about which files to down load and the procedure for installation for Linux.
