Please look at the current documentation:

   The @code{fptex} distribution of @LaTeX{} (directly from any CTAN node    such as @url{http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/windows/fptex/} or    via XEmTeX at @url{http://www.fptex.org}) includes a suitable port of    @code{pdftex}.

(www.fptex.org was available until very recently.)
