Well, sorry, actually I'm not an expert in network area: I just try to
help our computer technician to install TeX Live, not on all Windows
desktop, but just on the server, in order to make easier the
maintenance. So maybe my questions will seem very basic :)

1. The TL install will be done only on the (Linux) server, right?

2. Even Windows binary system may be installed on it?
