Well, the documentation is more up-to-date on the main site ( see:
http://www.w3.org/Jigsaw/ ), so it shouldn't be a big problem.
We already made a fix a while ago, for mac users (filename limitation
problem). Everything that was mandatory to run jigsaw uses short (well
shorter) names, and things that were too long has been put in a zip
(jigadm.zip for example).

Just saying that you were not able to run it doesn't help! What are the
symptoms? Do you have any trace?
