Hi, the original FeynArts1.0 can be adapted to Mathematica 3.0 and if you really need it I can send you my patch. However, there is a more general different version, FeynArts2.2, maintained by Th. Hahn at the University of Karlsruhe; you can download FeynArts2.2 by ftp (see the link on my home page (http://www.mertig.com).
