This is the right section. First when you install TL, you have to go
to selection of platforms and select all that you plan to use. For
unix-like systems you have to mount the texmf-* trees and set PATH
(and MANPATH if you need "man") to the correct directory. For
windows-like systems you need to map a network drive and then use the
script available from that very section to create shortcuts.
