Well, in the README file provided, there is a reference to scripts that
has been made to help the installation, install.bat and jigsaw.bat are
your friends ;)

Also in the Jigsaw highlights, it is stated that jdk1.2 is required. (I
should update the installation page for this requirement, also the idea to
split the doc is good, but will require one more click).

jview is enough for the setup which is just the creation and update of
some files.

Hum, it looks either like a CLASSPATH pb, or a classloader pb of the jdk,
anyway, the install and run scripts are there to help, even if they may be
better (I am not a windows expert)
