Hi Andrea,

Regarding the installation of TeX and ConTeXt I did it for my daughter  
who is a biologist, on a MacBook: this is quite easy with MacTeX.
Then it is enough to tell your students to do in a Terminal window:
	sudo ctxtools --updatecontext

For LuaTeX it is a little bit more complexe, since the first  
installation is more tricky for the non specialist.

It seems that yes, but I couldn't setup things correctly on my  
machine… (MacBook Pro + MacOS X 10.5.3 + TeXShop + GWTeX).
If you succeed, please let me know how.

Best regards: OK
