1) Try http://www.jadud.com/people/mcj/links/Code/
You'll find links for new documentation (html, pdf) as well as a new PLT
bundle that should install properly on v. 206+.

2) Where did you get the PLT file you're working with? The behavior you're
describing is consistent with trying to install a PLT bundle designed for
an older version of Mz/DrScheme on a more current version. Or, put another
way, the .plt file I had laying around on the net for some time worked in
205, but choked to death in 206.

I'd be interested in knowing where that .plt file came from, as I thought
I managed to remove all of them from the WWW, so as to save others from
bad installation experiences.

Regardless, you'll find the new version should install just fine via the
DrScheme "Install PLT file..." option. You may need to go into your
'collects' directory and remove any remanants of the (failed? boged?)

I get this list in digest mode, and often catch up on it several days at a
stretch; drop me a note if you have any problems.

(ASIDE: Should I be tracking the README that ships with DrScheme to know
when PLT formats change between versions? This took me by surprise the
first time it happened. Or, should I assume that it will change with every
major version number? Basically, what can I keep track of to be a good
