Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi you guys!
I have miktex installed on my pc(winxp) but how do I get Latex?:S And how do I get pdftex to work? I just have a zip file now witch contains a bunch of files and directories. This is what is written in a file called "Install"

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The code of pdfTeX is in src/texk/web2c/pdftexdir

Try the script build.sh in this directory. If it succeeds, you should end up
with the files pdftex and pdftex.pool in build/texk/web2c

If you are using a TeX distribution older than 2005 (e.g. teTeX 2.x), please
first update your complete TeX installation.

Replace the so-named files in your TeX installation with these and regenerate
all formats of your TeX installation (e.g. with "fmtutil --refresh").

If all else fails, follow the clues in README, src/texk/INSTALL and
src/texk/web2c/INSTALL.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

I do not understand a thing how to get this work

Install a LaTex gui such as Technicenter....

Look at www.tug.org for them and you should be able to make it work fairly quickly.
