Hello thanks for this reply.. However as I told you I'm a newbie here, 
and I did check tlmgr for the mf2pt1 package but it seems it is not 
there in either the installed or not installed package list. Does 
TexLive not include this? Please can you help me as to what I have to do 
to install it and use it in TexLive? I have downloaded 
mirror.ctan.org/support/mf2pt1/mf2pt1.pdf but it doesn't have anything 
specific to TexLive. Or should I ask this at the tex-live group?
