[PLT-Scheme] Installing SLIB on Windows XP

I don't imagine that it really is hard to install slib, someone
should be able to express the directions in a few sentences. You
don't need to give every permutation, just something that works,
e.g., 1) unzip to c:\slib  2) assuming you have the default
Program Files install of plt-scheme, put the init file in [this]
directory 3) set [this windows environmental] variable to [this], 

Actually, I did once manage to get slib going in some bizarre
way - I believe I unzipped slib to the plt collects dir AND in
addition emptied the contents of the slib folder into the dir
above that - heh, and maybe some other things I had to do.

As for srfi 95, yes, you're right, when I get some free time
together I should do it myself. Time is always short, tho.
