In fact it is not stand-alone ISO, but part of a greater one DVD
distributed as "TeX Collection 2005". However you can use it,
as described in the documentation (run tlpmgui directly, etc.).

We know that "live" installs sloooowly on Windows. Paweł Jackowski
adapted the program just befere a release and it uses standard Windows'
xcopy :(. Sorry for that, but you know: no time, no help from 
anybody else, etc.
Please use "inst" TL version which installs quite fast.

All the best,
