Obviously, I'm just speculating here. There are a few things I can 
think of that could be the root of the problem. I suspect that there is 
nothing "wrong" with your installation.

While I was composing this message, I got Martin Sneep's reply. I agree 
with him, that the problem is probably a mismatch between your new 
install of tex and a (probably very) old one. What I would suggest is 
to find out what version of TeX (and LaTeX) they use to successfully 
compile this document. You'll probably need to install an equally old 
TeX. Your best bet for this is probably tetex itself (which underlies 
many modern TeXs). The tetex homepage is www.tug.org/teTeX. There is a 
tetex mailing list that you can subscribe to and ask where you can find 
older versions. You'll probably have to compile it yourself, though.
