[texhax] can't put list in picture

I'm trying to produce 4 B7 forms on one B5 piece of paper using
latex. Each form is constructed as a list.
The problem is I can't use a description (or other list)
environment within a picture environment.
I need the picture environment, I believe, to get my boxes up to 1
cm from the corners of the piece of paper.
I can get text into the picture environment, but not lists.
Outside the picture environment, lists are OK, but then I can't
position them as I like. The margins are too wide.
Here is my quizform.tex
\item [Round:] \_\_\_\_\_
\item [Week:] \_\_\_\_\_
\item [Table:] \_\_\_\_\_
\item [Banker:] \_\_\_\_\_
And here is the error message:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.4.5)
Babel <v3.7h> and hyphenation patterns for american, french,
german, ngerman, n
Document Class: article 2001/04/21 v1.4e Standard LaTeX document
! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
Whether the description environment is in a framebox or not,
I get the same error.
When I move it out of the picture environment, it produces a
dvi file, but not the dvi file I want.
This is the Fedora Core 1 rpm of tetex-latex.
Do I need to investigate other packages?
