I am trying to make changes to how my
footnotes are set. Normally, the index of the
footnote is superscripted, but I want it to
be normalized. In Lamport's Latex book it
says that I can make rename the relevant
package, i.e. footmisc.sty (to
'fspFootmisc.sty), make the changes I want in
the new file, and add usepackage{fspFootmisc}
to my .tex-document. When I do this I get the
following error:

Package `vmargin', V2.2, <1999/06/01>
! LaTeX Error: Missing \begin{document}.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

I am working on a system at my university
where I cannot place packages in the latex
folder. I can only put new packages in my own
account/folder: Must I make changes in my
shell? This last question might reveal just
how little I know about this whole subject.
