[texhax] teTeX problems with tex.pool

I'm new to Tex and I'm having problems installing tetex-2.0.2 on a Sol 8 
unix machine.  Everything seems fine with the installation, however when I 
try to use any of the binaries,(ie. latex or pdftex) I get a "format file 
error, I'm stymied". 

I've searched the internet on this error and have tried to remake my 
format files with fmtutil --all. I then get, tex.pool doesn't match; 
tangle me again ( or fix the path). fmtutil: `tex -ini -fmt=tex 
-progname=tex tex.ini' failed.

This is the only tex.pool on the system. There are no earlier versions. 
It's using the tex.pool from the installation. 

Any assistance on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
