[texhax] Seeking help for LaTeX hyperref package

I apologize if this is not the right forum for this question.  If not, could 
you please direct me to the proper one.

I have been trying to get the hyperref package to work in Beamer, but have 
been unable to get it to function properly.

I then tried just using the hyperref package in a simple LaTeX document, but 
can't get that to work either.

I have tried searching every user manual and online FAQ I can find, but none 
seem to help with getting it to work.  I have been doing what they say should 
work, but it doesn't, and have been unable to find anything online which helps 
me debug my code.

I have Adobe Reader 7, and when I open other people's documents with 
hyperlinks they work, so I am pretty sure it has something to do with the way 
I am trying to invoke the hyperref package.

After my introductory documentclass stuff, I include the command

I saw somewhere that it is recommended to include this command after all other 
usepackage commands, so I have it as the last command before the begin 
document and title stuff.  I double-checked that I have the hyperref package, 
and also ran the "Refresh FileName database" just to be sure LaTeX knows it is 

I have WinEdt 5.2, and to compile, I run LaTeX twice, then dvi->ps and finally 
ps->pdf.  The document will compile and open fine, but will not have any 
hyperlink functionality.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide
