i had problems with this yesterday. it ended up i had to modify the
ivtvfwextract.pl file and do some stuff manually. it _is_ doable, but
a real pita. i ended up unzipping the exe manually, copying the sys
file into the tmp dir, and modifying the perl script so it wouldnt use
the PID in the directory name (the special perl var $$).
