Thanks Herb. When I ran the first command:
sudo tlmgr option location http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/2008
sudo: tlmgr: command not found
which is very odd since I have messed with the command before, though
it has been some weeks. I never did tell it to install anything, but
it did exist.
