[ Resending to latex2html list / Kaja ]

Dear mailman-owner,

since a few weeks I am trying to install latex2html under Windows 2000.
Unfortunately unsuccessful until now, even though I got a bit further at
every new attempt. In order to get the installation finished I subscribed
the latex2html mailing list and hoped to get some help. Now, my last letter
was not published (I include it in case you want to check it). What I just
wanted to ask is wether questions like this are too basic (or trivial) to be
published. In this case I would like to unsubscribe from the latex2html
mailing list, because I do not want to waste any more time in the
installation. If the question can be published I ask you kindly to do so;
perhaps it's the last problem to be solved before I can use latex2html...

Yours sincerely
Klaus Simon

PS (The e-mail I tried to send)

I just installed latex2html under Windows 2000 and tried to convert a first
document. Most of the translation worked fine, but then I got th following
error messages:

(begin error messages)

First I tried to create the missing tmp-directory, but it somehow disappears
while running latex2html.
I would be glad if anyone could help me and thank you very much.
