I would very much like to have printed manuals of all the
stuff that is currently in tex-info format. I understand
that I should be able to to create this on my PC, but have
not been able to find a combination of (tex, macros, fonts,
dvi2ps/fonts-for-same, getting indexes and foot notes right,
and all the other things that seem to go wrong,...) set of
tools that I can use to do this. I am sure part of the
"problem" is me, since I am not a day-to-day user of 
tex,... . I have found most of the pieces that I think I
need (mostly from my simtel CD), but it is beyond me to
get them working together. I would like to beg for the 
following: 

Could someone who knows how to do this post the names of
ALL the pieces that are needed (including where they can
be FTPed from), how to install them, what environment 
variables need to be setup, and then the ACTUAL command
line that need to be typed to get me from the texinfo.tex
files to a postscript file.

OR

Even better (am I dreaming here ??) just create the PS 
files, and include them (zipped ) in the normal FTP sites
where we get the rest of DJGPP goodies.

Thanks DJD for the BEST PD SW around.!
