No dice. After some trial and error, I discovered PNM.EXE is the appropriate
binary for conversion to pbm. If I select it after the beep (see below),
then everything works fine until I quit the kernel. I tried explicitly
including its directory in $Path, but the (re-launched) kernel still fails
to find it.
