For Ant you dont have to be an Admin - just extract the binary distro.

Would be helpful, but is not necessary: ant.bat sets this variable.

> CLASSPATH=%ANT_HOME%\LIB\*.jar or specific.jar

DONT! You could earn lot of problems when doing that. The ant.bat starts 
quasi a "java -cp ant-launcher.jar Launcher" and that class will load all
jars from ANT_HOME\lib and USER_HOME\.ant\lib.


Indeed helpful - but not necessary.
