The step "In the Mathematica 5.1 installation directory..." is a bit of
a problem for those of us who downloaded the Windows installer for
Mathematica 5.1: It's just an .exe file, not a zip file. So how would
we find that directory, which must be a fleeting, temporary one (under
the installing user's "Documents and Settings" "Local Settings" Temp
directory?) that is created when one runs that .exe file and then surely
erased ?
