I am trying to use ivritex to be able to do Hebrew in Latex. I appear to 
have it installed, but I have the following error that apparently is 
related to improper installation of the culmus fonts.

> kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+120/600 --dpi 
> 720 rdavidb
> mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for rdavidb.

I searched for solutions, and based on what I found I tried using 
updmap. I based this on information in the following link, esp item 5.

However, even though I find culmus.map under texmf/dvips, I cannot get 
this to work. 

Any ideas from this group would be much appreciated.
