I am using miktex 2.1 with WinEdt 5 and Windows 98. I have gathered all the files I need so that
I can latex my prosper slides. This appears to work without any problems.

However when I try and view the dvi produced I get the message:

Error: PostScript problem:

GhostScript error

I am using Yap 0.98n for viewing the dvi files.

I am able to use the same latex file to produce dvi, postscript and pdf on our sun solaris machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated
