OK, I'm here. Some notes:
1. can we have again live.tex in one file? It is more easy to make diffs
   (especially for the final corrections, when things will change every 
   day) and also make global changes (like removing references to obsolete 
   things, etc.)
2. As I see, part 4.1 (install-pkg.sh) still remains.
3. windows.tex is excluded at the moment, but I think that we can still
   use some good subsections:
   a) Support packages for Windows
   b) Adding your own packages to the installation (not all, and this part
      would be OK to general notes, not only for win32)
   c) What's different in Windows?
   d) Personal configuration
   e) Tips and tricks for Win32

Karl, should I start to reorganize that (with my poor English:-)
or have I rather to start with only Polish translation?
All the best,
