The warning messages that you are observing most likely relate to notebook and cell options that were introduced in Mathematica 4. In most cases, the error messages are benign and may be ignored. It is also possible to install Mathreader 4 on a system running Mathematica 3.0. The two products will install themselves in distinct locations on your file system so they are independent of one another. The only thing you have to work around is file associations for notebooks. Once Mathreader is installed, you may find that double-clicking on a notebook's icon will result in it being loaded in MathReader. Check your operating system documentation for information on how to adjust file associations. -- P.J. Hinton User Interface Programmer paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
