Is there a win32 binary install kit for Lazarus?  I see hints that
Lazarus runs on Win32 but the download folders for Win32 are empty. 
(Apologies if I'm not supposed to ask about Lazarus here...)

So I fetched the latest FPC win32 full install ZIP from the US mirror
but when I clicked on the install, I saw a screen that was basically
blank (blue background, some top bar and bottom bar text, but nothing
inside).  Then it disappeared.  Each subsequent double-click just
disappeared very quickly.  I don't see anything like install.exe
running in the taskmanager. Any ideas?  FPC installed fine on windows

I have a cheap eMachines XP 2400+ (i.e., 2GHz) Athalon XP machine
(you know, the one that runs slow as a dog...)
