And here's the current bug list:
- the run from CDROM stuff doesn't work. I have a fix which I'll
email if you need it now
- the change-the-icon stuff apparently only works on NT
- it also will fail unless you have Mark's Win32 stuff installed
(this one I have a fix for).
I'm keeping a buglist on the download page, so I won't have to
bother the group with these messages.
