Hi David

I have run system-tetex before and it had no problems I am not
sure what is happening to yours.

I also used fink to install latex2html and got a similiar
outcome.  My memory of l2h on UNIX from a few years ago
was that you had to run a file called something like
install-test to do the setup.  I think that

>Error: No such image type ''.
>        This installation supports (first is default):

is because it should have been told the image type is
gif or png or something and all it has got is an empty

I couldn't find a file install-test
  in the latex2html folder which seemed to be in /sw/lib.
But when I looked at the log of the install at one
point it seemed to list the directory of this folder and
install-test was in it ?  At this point I decided that
was enough procrastination from my grant application so I
ran fink remove!

Have a look in your latex2html folder and see if you have
such a file. If so I would try running it - its a perl script
I think.

Ross Moore is the expert on this - I am sure he will reply soon :-)
He has the online manual on this web page
