A Windows installer that is Free Software was written by Andrew Innes
several years ago, for the "GNU Software for MS-Windows and MS-DOS"
CD-ROM (sold at the time by the FSF).  I guess it might need some work
to add some bells and whistles, but it's a good starting point, and it
at least did TRT with all Windows varieties, from Windows 9X to W2K.

If someone needs its sources, I can dig them up.
