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
