latex does not work

Can some body tell me why I get this when I try
"latex somefile.tex" ?

I have linux SLS. Thanks for any idea


1. ispell does not work with latex!

I want to use ispell to spell-check a latex documents.
It reports all latex \command as spelling errors. Is
there a latex friendly spelling checker for linux?

I am using Slackware 2.0 on a 486 pc.

Many thanks
