I was wrong in interpreting that error message. My system was in fact
complaining that latex didn't exist on that box (this is a UNIX
back-end server that I usually don't use for TeXing). I fixed this.
and now latex2html runs through fine.

However, my graphics don't show up, probably because I am using EPS
graphics. Does latex2html have an option to automatically call
ghostscript to render the eps file into displayable graphics?

Also, I found that latex2html ignores empty lines in the source and
thus doesn't create paragraphs. All text of a section is delivered
into a large block of text. Did I misconfigure that?

Thanks, Russ, for your E-Mail. I tried answering it and during the way
if writing the answer, I found my real mistake.
