Subject: TeXLive4 CDROM
Date: Tue, 25 May 1999 17:08:15 -0400

I  just received my TUGBoat Vol. 20 No. 1 with the TexLive4 CDROM.
The CDROM is readable on my Macintosh and SPARC-II (SUN-OS 4.14) systems,
but fails entirely (and with much fuss) to mount on my Windows95 computer.
  (I've checked the drive; it reads the TeXLive3 disc OK).
The serial number of the CDROM is 5B46-5B3A -- when inserted into the
Windows drive I get an error
screen saying the CDROM may need to be cleaned (and said serial number).  It
isn't dirty, but there are
some minute imperfections in the plastic near the outer edge...
Anyhow, the installation I use most is the Windows95 one that isn't

Is the problem a general one, or is it likely I've a misprinted disc?  In
the latter case I'll happily return it
to you in exchange for a good one.  If it's a general problem, just let me
 I  can probably transfer the necessary files from the SPARC, with some
