NetBeans3.4 Beta(build 200206201555):

The default install directory is "NetBeans IDE
3.4beta". Notice, there are spaces in that. When I
ran ide installed in the default directory using
"", the ide could not start with error
./ /ffj/NetBeans: does not exist

Installing ide in directory without space, ide

I found missing quotes in the  The warning message is
printed but the IDE is launched okay (mine == Linux).

The problem is not the installation directory but rather the current
working directory (which happens to be the install dir in your case)
with spaces in path.

Updated the "Summary" field accordingly.
