If I remember well, MiKTeX helps you through the Installation of Packages
when the compilation detects that are some package you need.

It is a terriffing problem when you are naive in LaTeX... and use to use

All my figures have been converted to EPS and I use graphicx to include
them. (I also use vi to edit my files. I suppose that I am in the Dark
Ages still.) Any direction would be appreciated. I'm willing to modernize,
but I don't know how. Thanks.
In Other hand If you use DVI script to compile (becouse of .eps files) the
typesetting is absolutely slower than if you use Pdflatex script (according
to the indications to do right). The comments about this problem were about
me (At least I had these kind of problems in this list). I changed all my
eps Figures to .pdf and works Good and Faster... And if you have a G4
processor perhaps is cool to use the faster way...;).
