I downloaded the MSWindows installer from

I install it on an XP machine.

The default path the installer proposes is the Vista one

C:\Documents and Settings\user\Documents\Squeak 4.1

CORRECT would be
C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\Squeak4.1

And as noted in the thread

The preference setting in the image for the shortcuts for copy/paste
should be ctrl-c and ctrl-p, not alt-c and alt-p

Otherwise the first three minutes impression for a new user will be mixed.

I hope this can be fixed before putting the announcement on the web site.
It is easier to fix it now than later on using time to answer newbie questions.
