First obtain the CDF of the max of your sample.

Let

So

and why do you think the CLT is involved here?

Not all convergences in distribution are to a normal.

Plus we're not observing a sum here either. - Jan 4th 2010, 06:15 AMsilk23
question before involved CLT, was being a fool

thanks for you help
