Its hard to help when we don't know what version of mathematica or what 
the error messages were.  I have experienced similar problems for two 
different reasons.

The first is that there are sometimes some symbols in common with global 
symbols or that you may have attempted to load it in once, gotten an 
error message which then messed up that session. I find that using 
Needs[`packagename`] works more reliably than <<packagname.

The second problem occurred on 2.2 after I upgraded to windows95 and the 
function which makes a context name into a filename expected the 
operating system to truncate the package name to 8.3.

Other things to check:  make sure the packages are in the correct 
directory.  Look at the packages with a text editor to make sure it 
isn't corrupt.  Also,the code


should not load in anything.  You want the code




to load in the package with loglogplot in it.

Finally, make sure you are using the correct symbol for the single 
quotes.  It is the apostrophe mark(`) on the upper left side of your 
keyboard underneath the tilde(~), not the single quote(') underneath the 
double quote(") on the right side of your keyboard.

Hope this helps.
