I guess I am missing the whole picture here... What are the pieces I need?

1) bjam -- I got it with Rene's install, and it's in my path. I assume
nothing else need to be done about it...

2) Boost.Build 2 -- a bunch of jam files, tool description files, etc. Does
it come as a part of Boost? When I have boost-build.jam, I understand where
it's taken from, but since I removed it... Is it comming as a part of the
current Boost tree? I have boost_1_32_0, Boost CVS, and Boost Sandbox CVS.
Should I use different Boost.Build in each tree? And I don't think

3) What is my $HOME directory? The boost-sandbox\libs\typeof\doc?
Assumming that I am trying to build the documentation... And if I build the
tests, will my $HOME be different? Besides I don't see Boost.Build in the
Boost Sandbox CVS...
