come on. That file is something I used for testing an installed 
Phoenix... no environment checks or anything.

About the net stops/starts:

I used a name like Phoenix-4.x.x both for the default installation 
directory and the NT service name. This means that several phoenixes can 
be installed at the same time when updating. I had links in the start 
menu (in a subdir with version info) for starting and stopping them. To 
test this I made that little script.

It could be discussed if some update system should be used instead of 
installing in different directories and using different service names, 
but as that is more difficult I didn't want to start with that.

I have updated dist-lite-wrapper (and some other tasks) locally to 
download the wrapper files and copy them to:

I can send the diffs if you would like to take a look. This is just one 
way to handle the different wrapper versions. Personally I'm not too 
happy about the wrapper-linux and wrapper-solaris filenames, but it 
could work.

As this layout only works with same versions of all the wrapper distros, 
I have commented out the solaris one. Hopefully Leif will get a Solaris 
box to compile on soon.
