Thanks - I did that (and see why you say more complicated) and eventually it
all works fine ...
... but ... requires 1gigabyte of space !
I did try some of the alternative "smaller" options provide by command <s>
of the install-tl.sh -
but none other than "full scheme" worked for me. I tried
F TeX Live medium scheme ===>>> could not find the pdfjadetex fmt
H XML typesetting scheme ===>>> could not find some file ecrm1000
I won't be able to leave it there using all 1GB (it's on a temp backup
partition). Do you or anyone know if it's possible to somehow customise a
livetex installation for running pdfetex and jadetex? The smaller ones I
tried used only 200MB and 100MB respectively. This full one has about 12
languages I will never use. But I don't know what is safe to erase. Or
can I add the missing pices to a smaller one? Maybe some use of texconfig
might do it?

DocBookInContext homepage http://www.hobby.nl/~scaprea/context/index.html no
longer exists so not promising. I would be happy with livetex if it can
Thanks for your help. John
