Either the program is not located here or you don't have the file
permissions required to run it.

The program (latex2html), which is a perl script, either has the location
of this file inside it or else it is located in the configuration file
(l2hconf.pm). Do a find to locate this file in your filesystem and make
sure the location of the DVIPS program is correct and that permissions
will allow running it.

Make sure that /tmp exists and has file permissions that allow the
creation of these temporary files. Probably world

A folder won't disappear. A "file" can disappear. Make sure that you have
correctly created the folder with appropriate permissions.

If problems, please write. <grin>
