    I have an IBM pc. I purchased TEX Live 4 with 3 other cd's =
(TEX/LATEX) from Tug a week ago. I'm having trouble getting it running. =
I installed TEX Live 4 and ran the TEX Shell from Windows 98. I did the =
following from the Shell options:


I got the Latex setup then entered a line of plain text

File/Save As

at this point, nothing happened. There was no preview. The original =
window with the Latex commands stayed on the screen. I checked the Log =
and a dvi file was set up. My questions are:

(1) how do I get a preview?

(2)how do I print a dvi file. I have an HP laserjet printer. There are =
no print commands on the shell.

I have some other more general questions:

(3)What version of Latex is used by TEX Live 4.

(4)When I try running it from DOS, it says TEX, not Latex. Which is it?

Thanks for your help
