<error messages snipped>

The problem is the packages you are loading were written for an
earlier version of Mathematica than version 8. These packages
are using functionality that has been moved from add on packages
to the kernel. Your options are:

Ignore the error messages.

Modify the packages so that they no longer load/require the
obsolete packages causing the error messages.

Contact the source where you got the packages to see if the
packages have been updated to be consistent with version 8
