Dear Mathematica programming experts,
I am a new user Mathematica 4.0 for Windows and ask help me:

01) When I want draw graphic of sin[x] - {  Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}]  }- I
receive next message

Display cannot be used during initialization.

Display["stdout", - Graphics -]

02) The attempt of wtiting data to file is successful :
Export["out.dat", {{5.7, 4.3}, {-1.2, 7.8}}]


!! out.dat

5.7    4.3
-1.2   7.8

but reverse function - Import["out.dat", "Table"] - give next message:

ReadList cannot be used during initialization.

System`ConvertersDump`parseToFields[<< 1 >>] is not a string,
InputStream[ ], or OutputStream[ ].
