It seems that with a Power-PC and a 10.4.7 system, rtf2latex2e  
doesn't work: that is, when you drop your file on the rtf2latex2e.bin  
icon in usr/local/rtf2latex2e, the system thinks that rtf2latex2e.bin  
is a directory and tells you you are not allowed to modify the  
element rtf2latex2e.bin

I can see no means to make rtf2latex2e.bin to work under classic;

Fortunately, I have a laptop wich can start under MacOS9.
