[Haskell-cafe] putting SOE 'on the library path'

This is a beginners question, which I have posted to 
beginners at haskell.org several times, but because I have gotten no 
answer, I thought I would try the cafe.

I'm working through the "School of Expression" book, and I would like to 
  install the code that comes with the book somewhere. Right now I have 
to write my exercise programs in the same directory where the SOE code 
is sitting so that my exercise programs can import SOE modules.

My platform is Windows.

I tried using the -i options to ghc and ghci, but to no avail. It wasn't 
clear on Windows in what form -i takes its arguments: backslashes as 
usual for Windows, forward slashes perhaps? How about paths with spaces 
in them? Does it need quotes around the filename? I tried all 
combinations. ghc never gave an error indicating there was something 
wrong with what I typed. It happily accepted all forms of -i. But it 
never found the libraries.
