Done. Final para of section 5.2.2 now reads:
The installer puts a copy of the DLLs in the directory C:\WINDOWS
\WinSxS (XP), inside subdirectories with mangled names. The manifest
file is in the 'Manifests' subdirectory, again this will have a
mangled filename. You can still discern the text 'Microsoft.VC90.CRT'
and '9.0.21022.8' within the mangled file and directory names, to find
the files. It is possible to take a copy of these files and remove the
filename mangling, to embed them in your application as described in
Where section 5.2.1 begins, as it always has:
If you do have the rights to redistribute MSVCR90.dll, there should be
a copy of it in your Visual Studio install, under VC\redist
