I have tried to install the FeynArts package on Mathematica 3.0 I
followed the instructions in the manual that comes with the package,
but I still get a great number of error messages. They are

When the kernel first starts, I get an error message Syntax::sntoctl:
    3 octal digits are required after \ to construct and 8-bit

this error does not occur if I remove the line $Path=Append[$Path,
"D:\Wolfram.......FeynmanArt"] but the directory is added to the path,
so this is a minor problem.

When I try to load the package with
I get the following messages

FeynArts 1.0 for Mathematica 2.0 (October 1991) by Hagen Eck and Sepp
[additional packages being loaded]
SetAttributes::sym : Argument {QMM11, QMM12, QMM13}
    at position 1 is expected to be a symbol. Get::noopen : Cannot open
CreateTopologies.m. Get::noopen : Cannot open InsertFields.m.
Get::noopen : Cannot open CreateFeynAmp.m. General::stop : Further
output of Get::noopen will
    be suppressed during this calculation.

I was wondering if there was something I needed to do differently on 3.0
since this package was evidently written for 2.0.

Thank you,
