[l2h] image generation problem

Okay, I just installed a new version of Linux (Mandrake 2005) and think 
I have everything I need to use latex2html on my documetation. But ... 
it doesn't work.

Running the program gives me a whole bunch of error messages in the form:

Error: Cannot read 'img2.png': No such file or directory
Converting image #25
pstoimg: Warning: Cannot use /var/tmp/l2h1260 as temporary directory.
pstoimg: Error: Cannot find file "/var/tmp/l2h1260/_image025.ps": No 
such file or directory

I have checked and I (as a user) can create files and directries in 

I have also converted a simple .ps file to .png with pstoimg. So, I know 
that pstoimg is installed and works.

I have looked at the .log files generated by latex2html. I probably 
don't know what I'm looking for, but don't see anything unusual.

mandrake seems to be missing the perldoc stuff, so I grabbed an rpm of 
that from the mandrake site. It needed to be 'forced' to install, but 
the result of that was the pstoimg now works. Not sure if that buggered 
things or not.

The tex I'm running is tetex 3.0.

And the version of the program:

latex2html --version
This is LaTeX2HTML Version 2002-2-1 (1.71)
by Nikos Drakos, Computer Based Learning Unit, University of Leeds.

BTW, the html generation seems to work just fine. Just no images.

A quiet plea for HELP!
