Has anybody else had a problem with the 2010 release on DVD, installing on WinXP?
I installed on a test machine which had a relatively clean Win installation, and which worked as well as could be expected.  However, after the installation (which was the default), various problems appeared.  Most noticeably, very slow startup and a tendency to spend a long time hanging with little aparrent activity.  Also, the Add/Remove Programs list will not populate, which is a sign of a somewhat broken registry.
However, TeXlive itself runs properly on sources prepared elsewhere.
Currently I use the 2007 release as the later ones have displayed a number of incompatibilities with the Memoir class and other issues.
