for your first logon either (a) go to Rm315 and after entering account name and temporary password (the computers have their names on the screens and on top) OPEN A TERMINAL WITH A MOUSE CLICK ON THE DESKTOP or (b) write ssh phmachine -l youridx in a window of aluf or t2 (phmachine is phelafel or phclass1 etc, youridx is the account name you asked for on class machines) then change password with the command passwd on the command line enter the temporary one then enter the real one twice. to organise your paths you need to have a file called .cshrc you can download it from here then write source .cshrc HELP HELP HELP if you compile on a computer where you have not yet set up paths and it says command not found then another quick fix is: write ./sur2005.ex or ./rwalk.ex etc and it will find it.
1) install a printer that has postscript (for instance - HP Color LaserJet 4550 PS). 2) from Excel (or other application) select the graph and choose print. 3) select "print to file", and select the printer you installed. 4) save the file as .ps 5) open the file with GSview. select PS to EPS from the file menu, save as *.eps 6) stick it in your latex file...good luck!
