Hi All,

I've been having problems including packages with ready-made .sty files 
I found in ctan.
For example, I'm trying to generate a resume with the res.sty package 
such that it uses some nice fonts.
I've tried putting the commands


in either res.sty or in my tex file itself but got the following errors:

! LaTeX Error: LaTeX2e command \usepackage in LaTeX 2.09 document.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.

! LaTeX Error: \usepackage before \documentclass.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.21 \usepackage[T1]{

any ideas on how I might fix this?
