I have just installed MacTeX-2007 on an iMac.
When I run pdflatex I get this message:
! I can't read pdfetex.pool; bad path?
warning: Could not open char translation file `cp227.tcx'.
Error: `pdftex -ini  -jobname=pdflatex -progname=pdflatex -translate- 
file=cp227.tcx *pdflatex.ini' failed

What steps do I need to take to resolve this?
Should I re-install or do something else?

Thank you,
