Yes, I can help. But, instead of hearing so much complaining,
I'd like to know:
1. computer and operating system;
2. preferred format (Plain, LaTeX, perhaps Johnny Brown still uses 
   old LaTeX209?)
3. what exactly doesn't work?

It is somehow interesting that a person, who have written TeX and LaTeX
documents `for years', needs any demo document. There is so many on the CD,
depending preferred format, TeX engine, etc.

Anyway, I know that the TL documentation still has some drawbacks,
but nobody wants to help the *very* small TL team. I didn't hear any 
comments: how the documentation can be corrected and improved.
