The different answers you can provide, when faced with TeX's error 
messages, are described in chapter 6 "Running TeX" of the TeXbook. You 
can also type "?", without the quotes, in response to the error 
message, and a short description will pop up:

? ?
Type <return> to proceed, S to scroll future error messages,
R to run without stopping, Q to run quietly,
I to insert something, E to edit your file,
1 or ... or 9 to ignore the next 1 to 9 tokens of input,
H for help, X to quit.

In particular, when faced with this:

>    ... myfile.aux
>    Runaway argument
>    ...
>    ...
>    l.76 \begin{document}
>    ?

which indicates a malformed .aux file, just type "s" and the 
typesetting operation will proceed until the end, creating a 
syntactically correct .aux file. Then typeset again (and maybe one or 
two more times, to get correct cross-references), you're done!
