[plt-scheme] SLaTeX: getting it to work

Thanks for your interest. :-)
I create this file called quick.tex:

In Scheme, \scheme{lambda} creates a function.

Then I save it in the PLT/collects/slatex/ folder so that it is together 
with slatex.sty. I fire up DrScheme and type:

(require slatex/slatex-wrapper)
(slatex/no-latex "C:/apps/PLT/collects/slatex/quick.tex")

Running this gives me:

Welcome to DrScheme, version 4.1 [3m].
Language: Pretty Big custom; memory limit: 128 megabytes.
SLaTeX v. 20050609
typesetting code[quick.tex]done

However, no .Z* file is to be found in either PLT/ or 
PLT/collects/slatex/ or anywhere else for that matter. I get the same 
result on Vista and Windows 2000, which makes me suspect I'm missing 
some crucial trick or something. A test file containing a schemedisplay 
environment doesn't produce anything either.
