Here are a few (stupid) questions that I hope someone in TUG can answer.
I recently ordered TeX Live because I need to get LaTex up and running on a new Dell PC with Windows ME as soon as possible. My old DOS-based 4allTeX would not run on this machine.
I used Quick install to load TeX Live, but nowhere in the voluminous documentation (of course, too much is equivalent to none at all) could I find how to actually run LaTex (compile, preview, and print a LaTex file). Please tell me how to run LaTex. I assume this question has a one-sentence answer. This simple but crucial sentence should be instantly available with the CD.
I also cannot find (at least, written in human language) how to run LaTex from the CD. The TeX Live Guide is completely useless, since it is written in gibberish.
I had assumed that the AMS recommended your program to its members because it would be easy and reliable to use. So far I am disappointed.
Thanks for your help.
